Mid90s

Mid90s

They probably had her at the subtle F-Zero nod, but Sarah was thoroughly taken by the tough coming-of-age film Mid90s when she saw it at TIFF this year.

The film, which was directed by Jonah Hill, perfectly captures the mood and the feelings of that era.

When Sarah saw director Alfonso Cuarón’s deeply personal Roma at TIFF 2018 she considered a true cinematic experience.

In her review for Consequence Of Sound she wrote, “Cuarón has transformed the influences of his own childhood into a nuanced and reflective chronicle that manages to touch on political upheaval, class inequality, gender inequality, life, and death.”

TIFF 2018: Widows Is A Better Kind Of Heist Film

Widows

Widows

While Liam Neeson is in the new film Widows by ace director Steve McQueen it’s important to note that nobody in his family gets kidnapped, requiring him to embark on an elaborate revenge quest.

In fact, Neeson’s quite secondary in Widows, as it focuses on Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki, the partners of a failed heist crew who now have to take over where their men left off.

Sarah loved this film when she saw it at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
