But, while speaking to The Independent he told an anecdote about how he once spent a week intent on killing a black person. This provoked varied responses from understandable outrage to praise for his honesty. In this episode of Hot Buzz What’s Hot […]

  • Loving Vincent (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    Red-haired, bearded writer/director Hugh Welchman is a bit of a Van Gogh lookalike himself, well his efforts to produce the world’s first fully hand-painted feature film culminated in a UK premiere at the National Gallery on Oct 9 that also had people at 170 other cinemas across the country holding out for the much-promoted live […]

  • Mother! (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    Psychological thrillers are writer-director Darren Aronofsky’s cinematic fare but Mother! takes the genre to the next level. Although his 2010 movie Black Swan was hailed as the Mother of all psychological thrillers, you’ll soon discover Mother! is the Mother of the genre. Javier Bardem stars as an unnamed celebrated contemporary poet who lives with his […]

  • The Limehouse Golem (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    The setting of grisly serial murders in the Victorian East End will immediately conjure up visions of cobbled streets, cockney accents and a Jack the Ripper type concealing his crimes in those crime-ridden, poverty-stricken backstreets. The Limehouse Golem is so much more than a Ripper copycat but describing lead character Elizabeth Cree (Olivia Cooke) as […]

    Fresh from her successful role as Laureline in recent movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets comes Cara Delevingne’s latest creative venture – her 368-page novel Mirror Mirror, co-written with Rowan Coleman and published by Trapeze. Judging by her performance in Luc Besson’s sci-fi flick, she has undoubted talent but English fiction writing […]

  • Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    Set in the 28th century, Luc Besson’s fast-paced sci-fi spectacular casts Cara Delevigne (Sergeant Laureline) alongside Dane DeHaan (Major Valerian) as special operatives policing human territories in a multi-species universe. Right there it has an undoubted curiousity factor. Can she act? Surprising well. Natural, a calm authority, perfect American accent and (this is no lie) […]

  • It Comes at Night (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    OK, this zombie virus movie is not strictly horror and may have been given a horror title just to pull in the punters but it is still a class and a half above other 2017 releases in this genre. Its cheesy fright-flick title can work both ways and certainly put off those who abhor the […]

  • All Eyez on Me (Film)
    Posted in: Movies & TV Shows, Reviews

    This much-awaited biopic about hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur had already drawn criticism from current rap king 50 Cent within hours of its release. As with all matters where there’s such high expectancy it can be difficult to please all the Tupac fans. It’s a big ask, trying to capture the dramatic rise to fame, controversy, […]

    On June 14th The Italian Cultural Institute in Belgravia hosted a screening of this documentary about a little known black Italian boxer called Leone Jacovacci who lived for a while in London, adopting the English name John Douglas Walker while he pursued his fighting career.
