Here is what he had in store for us this week!


Film: The Power of the Dog

This dark drama explores the tense and suffocating nature of toxic masculinity through the adaptation of Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel that shares the same name. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons, this Jane Campion masterpiece showcases the life of a cowboy who torments and self-projects onto his brother for finding love, until he is unexpectedly presented with the possibility of finding love himself. The Power of the Dog is available in select cinemas for a limited release, and to stream on Netflix from December 1.

TV Series: Heels

Although the title may lead audiences to believe this is a series focusing on the fashion or shoe industry, Heels in fact explores the rivaling story of two brothers within the world of professional wrestling. In the wrestling ring, the “heel” represents the villain, whilst the “face” represents the hero. This well-casted American drama series sees the two battle to preserve their late father’s wrestling promotion, competing with each other in an attempt to gain national attention within the small-town of Georgia. Heels is available to stream on Stan.

Album: Valentine Snail Mail

TV Series: The Other Two

The Other Two is an American comedy series that follows the lives of an aspiring actor and a former dancer who attempt to navigate life and all of it’s complexities whilst it is spun upside down by their 13-year-old brother’s sudden overnight rise to internet stardom. The Other Two is available to stream on Paramount Plus.
