    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 27/04/2017

    » Though the president of the United States is a character in more than a few novels, he is a product of the authors' imaginations and bears little if any resemblance to the actual incumbents. In some stories he's idealised, in others vilified.

    Horror film does double duty as social satire

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 07/04/2017

    » Hot on the trail of the Oscar-winning Moonlight and half-a-century after Katherine Hepburn gasped at her daughter's black fiancée in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?, here comes Get Out, a "social thriller" about a black man trapped in a white horror.

    The Tudor women

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 03/03/2017
