An ensemble of Screen writers pitch in with their favourite films of the 2010s.
Ben Faulkner takes a look back at this years cinema hot takes.
“Stop all the pain. How do you stop all the pain?” Dave’s opens his debut album with an inquisition into his own mental health – and the next 51 minutes are spent encouraging the same self-evaluation from his listeners. Appending certain tracks with snippets of a therapy session, Dave leaves facetious hip-hop skits behind in […]
If you’re still convinced the industry is stuck in an originality crisis, I’d like to grab your face and point it aggressively towards Sorry to Bother You – an urgent, shocking satire that balances wit and crushingly perceptive socioeconomic observations within one of the most original concepts of the year. Boots Riley directs Lakeith Stanfield’s […]
Alt-J is back, with a dreamy reimagining of their 2017 project, RELAXER, charged with hip-hop, R&B, and escapism. Lomepal, Paigey Cakey, and Rejjie Snow are among an expansive list of features, which showcases different facets of rap, and different languages.

It is not just a genuinely creepy horror laced with social commentary; it is an impeccably balanced horror-comedy that moulds […]
Witty, poignant, and apparently controversial, Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri has – since snapping up four Golden Globes and a number of BAFTAs – suddenly established a divisive place for itself in this awards season. It seems there are those of us who like it – looking at you Hollywood Foreign Press – and those among […]
The Drums – now solely comprising of founder Jonny Pierce – have not only just released their fourth album, but have also just released their best album. I realise that’s some statement to open with, especially when their first two efforts – The Drums (2010) and Portamento (2011) – included indie favourites, ‘Let’s Go Surfing’, […]
