On the 13th of May I was lucky enough to be on assignment for X-Press Magazine to attend a preview screening of Red Joan. This was my first assignment for X-Press in 2019 followed by checking out John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum.
Red Joan in some ways was a refreshing take on the way we approach spy thrillers but a real slow burn of a film. I can’t say I was riveted by say the quiet but visually dynamic and stylish Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. By the way are they going to do a sequel to that or not? Still I think there is a lot to recommend in Red Joan not least of which are the performances of the cast led by Sophie Cookson and Dame Judi Dench.

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.

Good review, Lloyd. I appreciate I haven’t seen it yet, but this looks right up my street. Great cast, good pedigree, and something I am actually interested in. Or I could watch the next ‘Iron Man’ remake.
Decisions, decisions… 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
If the metric of being a good film is not being Iron Man then I think it’s safe to say you will enjoy Red Joan. 🙂 For me it was fairly good, I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Thanks and best wishes Pete.
You sold me on seeing it,Lloyd. Good review. I could not find a like button on the review itself.
Computer glitches get stitches. 🙂 Thanks for trying, I’m finding those things can be temperamental and disappear or not work from time to time. Thanks anyway.
Great review Lloyd! More please!
You’re most kind Lara, I’ll see what I can do. 🙂
