Flux Gourmet

Review by Sarah Murnane Flux Gourmet (Peter Strickland, 2022) is an independent movie that fails to hit the mark. The film follows a group of artists who join an institute dedicated to culinary performance. The ‘culinary collective’ made up of Billy (Asa Butterfield), Elle (Fatma Mohamed) and Lamina (Ariane Labed) gradually deteriorates in the search toContinue reading “Flux Gourmet”

Bullet Train

Review by Alex Garrett !!Spoilers Ahead!! No matter how pretentious and contrarian my opinions about films may be, ultimately, I am a simple man.
