Film: Killers of the Flower Moon
Scorsese returns with another masterpiece, Killers of the Flower Moon. This film takes us back to the 1920’s when an abundance of oil is found in Oklahoma on Indigenous Osage Nation land. Starring Scorsese’s recurring cast of Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, with indie darling actress, Lily Gladstone. Premiering at Cannes earlier in the year, it has been successful worldwide and praised by many critics.
Killers of the Flower Moon is in cinemas now. Watch the trailer here.
Netflix original miniseries, Beef, follows the simple premise of a road rage accident but in a tragicomic light. It consumes the lives of Danny Cho and Amy Lau, played by Steven Yeun and Ali Wong respectively, in a game of payback. Only ten episodes in the series makes it a bingeable watch that keeps you hooked.
Beef is out now on Netflix. Watch the trailer here.
Roar is the latest addition to Apple TV+. Based on a collection of thirty short stories by Irish author Cecilia Ahern, this anthology explores multiple experiences of womanhood with a darkly comedic feminist perspective. Eight half-an-hour episodes draw you in with each title intriguingly starting with “The Woman Who”.
Roar is out now on Apple TV+. Watch the trailer here.
Album: Yard, Slow Pulp
Slow Pulp is a four-piece band from Chicago whose last release was back in 2020. Yard is their second album which expands on their reputation as an alternative/indie band by crossing genres, such as shoegaze and country. Emily Massey’s, Slow Pulp’s lead singer, tremendous range and lyricism compliment the band’s new era of exploration. This album is a huge step up from their debut. It has a perfect length of ten songs lasting for a concise total of thirty minutes — no filler, all killer!
