Cinema is all around us. We grow up watching movies, we learn from them, we share them. At Trinity Film Review, we know what makes a movie great and what makes a movie not-so-great. We want to hear you tell us why.
Open to Trinity students of all experience levels, TFR has something for everyone.
Review by Eve Smith Ennio Morricone is always framed by the same cartoonish pair of bottle-end glasses.

The sprawling documentary, constructed from Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s footage of the songwriting sessions leading upContinue reading “The Beatles: Get Back – The Rooftop Concert”
