X-Press 7

I’m very lucky to have been sent another screener to review a film for X-Press Magazine. In The Fade is a 2017 film from Germany starring Diane Kruger in a performance that won her Best Actress at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. Telling the story of a domestic terrorist act from a very different and personal perspective it is an interesting film with a great performance at the centre of it. You can read the review here

X-Press Magazine was established in 1985 and at one point was Australia’s highest circulating free weekly entertainment publication with over 40,000 copies reaching 1,000 outlets every week.  On the 24th May, 2016 Issue 1527 (the last one in print) hit stands. Like many publications of its ilk X-Press Magazine is now foremost an online magazine engaged globally and making the most of the possibilities that new digital technology offers. It’s roots though are tied to its home city, love of local artists and productions and music which it supports wholeheartedly. Perth a capital city most isolated from all the other capitals is continuing to grow and develop culturally and artistically with its own identity and talent. X-Press has always been there to capture this growth and will continue to do so.

  1. Top review, Lloyd. This film is definitely one for me. It is released later this year on DVD, and I will be buying it. In a sea of blockbusters and comic-book franchises, this shines like a little pearl.
    Best wishes, Pete.
