The Reel Talk team shares their opinions on the best subgenres to pick from this Halloween if you’re looking for a scary treat.
Just in time for the scariest day of the year, Dominic Thornton returns to discuss a much maligned entry in the Halloween franchise, making his case for why it’s one of the most emotionally affecting horror films in recent memory.
Owais Azam explores the thematic complexities of There Will Be Blood, focusing in particular on the presentation of protagonist Daniel Plainview.
The Warwick Film and TV Studies first year students reflect on some of their favourite films that they studied over the past year.
Issy Smith examines sex on screen and the objectification of women in Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon (1950). Her analysis proves why it is crucial to engage with depictions of sex on screen in films firmly established within the canon from a racialised and feminist lens.
Owais Azam deconstructs thriller genre conventions and shows how Michael Haneke reverses them. By drawing attention to POV and address Azam presents a film that is unsettlingly personal!
Akira Kurosawa’s Ikiru (1952) is a minimalistic yet emotionally and philosophically invigorating examination of the human condition; specifically, Ikiru perfectly condenses the lifelong human search for meaning and purpose into its 143-minute runtime.
Owais Azam explores the style and themes of Edward Yang’s A Brighter Summer Day.
