We’ve seen it in the movies…

MostlyFilm is slowing down during August.We’ve got a few pieces to publish, but we’re not following a schedule because…it’s the holidays, maaan.

However, if you’re lost for something to read on the beach, though, why not take a wander through our archives?

We’ve had a busy few months so far, starting the year trying not to jump on the La La Land Backlash wagon and eventually agreeing that it was a lovely film, but NOT JAZZ.  We don’t just cover the big releases though. In February our writers recommended another round of obscure cinematic gems that they didn’t think got enough love.

We marked International Women’s Day this year with two posts on women who defined a decade, starting with Lillian Gish and ending with a scion of a Hollywood dynasty.  In April we got lost on the way to the Odeon Leicester Square and ended up watching the West End revival of 42nd Street instead.

May and June saw us watching the UK release of American Gods and valiantly attempting to ignore the General Election and the looming chaos of Brexit. Ron Swanson braved the crowds to report back from this year’s Cannes Film Festival.  We’ve also attended the Cinema Ritrovato festival in Bologna and the Manchester International Festival. 

So that’s us for the first half of the year. We’re still planning out the months up to Christmas, but the only thing I can guarantee is that it will be fascinating, annoying, deeply geeky and mostly about film.
