Trapped S1 ~ A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 5 minutes Trapped was the first Icelandic TV series to make an impact internationally. Having watched both series a while back I was intrigued as to what my reaction might be upon a revisit to season 1.

JJ+E: Netflix ~ A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 4 minutes JJ+E is a teen movie and while watching and thinking about it I have borne this strongly in mind. For full disclosure, it is a VERY long time since I was a teenager!

A White, White Day ~ A Non-Spoiler Review

Reading Time: 7 minutes Although this may not appear to be a narrative film, it is, but it is also far more than just a straight narrative being rich with symbolism that is woven through the story itself. There is dialogue though and when dialogue happens it happens because it is important. Listen to what it tells you, not only by what is said but, just as importantly, by what remains unsaid.
