X-Press 10

It’s just a pleasure to review films for X-Press Magazine where I have gotten screeners from some truly interesting and diverse work. I was first published with them December 14, 2017 contributing to the Top 20 Films of 2017 List and then on December 21, the Top 20 TV Shows of 2017 List. Which when you think about it was a pretty privileged way to start as a contributor. In the five months since I have reviewed for X-Press The Crown Season 2, Ellipsis, We Don’t Need A Map, Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool, In The Fade, The Endless, Tully and now in my tenth published post for them the 2016 French/Belgian co-production Lost in Paris.

I had never heard of Fiona Gordon or Dominique Abel who wrote, directed and star in this latest collaboration between the real life couple who met years ago in the circus. I defy anyone to not be charmed by this film a little and you can read more of my thoughts here http://xpressmag.com.au/lost-in-paris-gets-8-10-the-french-connection/

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. I loved the trailer, and it’s great to see films starring people who are not conventionally ‘glamorous’. Canadians always had those flags or patches on their packs in London too. So we know they are not American, I presume. 🙂
    I will be anticipating this one, for sure.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I’ve heard about that with the Canadian flags. Apparently it was a 2016 film so it should be out over there on DVD or something. My wife really loved it too.
