LIFF - Netflix The Old Guard Film review

The Old Guard 7.5/10 The Old Guard is a highly energetic new Netflix release with a really interesting concept and some God-damn mind-blowing action sequences. The movie follows a covert team of immortal mercenaries who are suddenly exposed and must now fight to keep their identity a secret just as an unexpected new member is discovered. First thing I want to address and talk about is the narrative. While there’s still some… Read More

Family Romance LLC Film Review By Dima Saqfalhait “Our policy at Family Romance is that we can only do what we really are.” I’ve always been intrigued by films that skillfully blur the line between reality and fiction. Oftentimes, in our daily lives, we find ourselves unable to tell reality from fiction. They appear to be so delicately intertwined that it feels almost absurd to try to single out one from the… Read More

Rope Film Review By Dima Saqfalhait “Good and evil, right and wrong were invented for the ordinary average man, the inferior man, because he needs them.” In Rope (1948) by Alfred Hitchcock, a murder takes place within the first three minutes of the film. We know the murderers (Brandon Shaw and Philip Morgan), we know the murder weapon (a rope), and we know the person they murdered (David Kentley). It is a… Read More
