This past year has been a trying experience under the best of circumstances.  Families stuck together 24/7 for weeks at a time. It could drive anyone crazy as little quirks that were once "cute" are now a thorn in the rest of the family's side.  However, what if you were trapped in a London flat with your significant other w...

They say, "Revenge is a dish best served up cold". If that's the truth, then this film is a most delicious meal. It's quite a raw film at almost every visual and verbal turn and you may want to turn it off somewhere in the beginning, but please don't; ride out any prejudices you may have and I promise you a film experience unlike anything...

In an age of Pixar/Disney/Illuminations computer-drawn animation, it's difficult to imagine "old school" hand-drawn feature films.  They are time-consuming and one wrong stroke of a pen could mean throwing out a drawing and starting all over again.  They also don't have the same level of precision or coloring that a comp...
