Long hinted at but delayed far too much, I have finally done a review for Darkest Hour which I’m fortunate to enough to have had published online with Heavy Magazine. In an interesting turn of events 3 of my posts with 3 different publications have gone online today which is kind of cool, I’m very grateful for these opportunities and I guess this reflects the breadth of my luck.

Some reviews you worry about, some you feel pretty good about and some you get excited about. I will be interested to see what you think of my review and the film. You can comment, like or share at Heavy at your will. The film is a muscular contemporary telling of events from long ago and humanises Churchill while buying into the legend. Gary Oldman is of course the front runner for Best Actor now although before a pick-up in the U.S. Box Office following his Golden Globe win the race was more open. You can read more of my thoughts here https://heavymag.com.au/film-review-darkest-hour/ It remains a thrill to regularly contribute to Heavy which is continuing to grow from strength to strength.

Heavy is an independent magazine and website that is all about the music and specifically heavy music and supporting the Australian music scene in general. Fortunately for me they do cover film as well and I have been fortunate to have a few things published there.
