What To Watch: Hush

16 October 2020

People who don’t enjoy watching horror films often ask – “why would anybody watch something which is solely designed to terrify you?” And it’s a good question. The answer seems to be that watching our worst nightmares play out on-screen has the potential to be cathartic, allowing us to purge ourselves of our own fear […]

Music I Listened To During Lockdown

10 October 2020

“I am gonna make it through this year, even if it kills me.” John Darnielle sang this line in 2005, as part of the song This Year in the album Sunset Tree. It seems to fit 2020 like a glove.  During lockdown, most of what I did involved listening to The Mountain Goats almost religiously. […]

What to Watch: Tommy’s Honour

2 September 2020

It’s strange that given how picturesque St Andrews is, it doesn’t feature in very many films. Of course, the town is well known for its (unconvincing) doubling for Kent in Chariots of Fire, and Agnes Blackadder Hall is fleetingly glimpsed as the recovery centre in Never Let Me Go, but films set in and about […]
