X-Press 15.jpg

It was a thrill to be on assignment for X-Press Magazine attending a preview screening of the film Colette a couple of weeks ago, my second for the magazine following a preview screening of Tully earlier in the year. Sadly while I think Colette is made with the best of intentions and is very relevant to our times, I can’t say I was greatly entertained by the film.

This wraps up my first year writing for X-Press with 15 posts featured. I look forward to working with them in 2019.

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 1,0000 outlets every week.  On the 24th May, 2016 Issue 1527 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. No worries Jet and thank you for the kind words. I’ve enjoyed working with X-Press and continuing to work for the other publications I freelance for including Scenestr where I had 50 pieces published online this year. Best wishes to you and yours over the holidays. This has been a year of renewal for you and may it continue in all aspects of your life.

  1. Well done, Lloyd, for all the reviews you have had published. It is a huge achievement to persuade people that you have something different to say, and that it is worth their time and money to publicise it. Here’s to even more success next year!!

  2. Throw a distinguished British cast at a costume drama, and the result is usually never less than watchable. I enjoyed The Duchess a lot, and only watched it three days ago, on BBC TV. I expect I will wait for a similar front-room showing of this film too.
    Best wishes, Pete.
