Sarah-with-the-Tape-Small-1 6

MEME Review

A fairly routine relationship drama adorned with existential ponderings that has plenty of creativity but runs a little low on emotion.

Cannibal Club - Still 2 5.5

THE CANNIBAL CLUB Review

Nothing is expounded upon, just introduced (sometimes in a shocking manner) and resigned to a sedentary existence amongst other ideas launched and ignored.

PITY Review

FailtoAppear (2) 8

FAIL TO APPEAR Review

Fail to Appear is a showcase of the power of help and support, both big and small, with small sometimes being the most important.
