Yes, there’s sex and violence but there’s also a sense of wonder and an exploration of what becoming Sense8 would be like – not to mention what it could mean for us as a species. I came to the series too late to give a timely review, but it is one of the best shows of the year and Sense8: Creating The World, a new 25-minute behind the scenes documentary is fascinating stuff.

Cloud Atlas Is A Stunning Achievement!

Autumn always seems to bring the most interesting and challenging films – and Cloud Atlas, from a novel that even its author described as ‘unfilmable’ is definitely both. By slipping from one arc to another (six in all) repeatedly, filmmakers Andy and Lana Wachowski and Tom Tykwer link tales of characters who are bound together through past, present and future to create a rich tapestry of visual styles and philosophical depth.
