The Iron Claw
With the January lull behind us (yes, I know it's already March) I'm really glad I kicked off the year with this one. A certified A24 gem - that will probably go under the radar - The Iron Claw is a hard-hitting (pun not intended) triumph. Catch this when you can.

"Tells the story of the Von Erich brothers as they make history in the highly competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s. Through tragedy and triumph, the brothers seek larger-than-life immortality on the biggest stage in sports."

Mr & Mrs Smith
Donald Glover and Hiro Murai- you've probably seen his stuff but haven't been paying attention tsk tsk - unite for a crisp, action packed romantic comedy that definitely needs to be on your radar. Even though I absolutely adore Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), I'm glad she left the show in 2021. Maya Erskine has been a revelation!

" During the weeks leading up to Christmas, Bill Furlong, a coal merchant and family man faces into his busiest season. Early one morning, while delivering an order to the local convent, Bill makes a discovery which forces him to confront both his past and the complicit silences of a town controlled by the church."

"P.S. Cillian Murphy leads the adaptation - which opened at the 74th Berlin Film Festival and show be hitting cinemas across the globe later this year. Need I say more?! Here's a Clip."

The Irish Indie- Folk trio are really just being modest when they call themselves 'Wannabe Songbirds" on Spotify. To be honest, they're actually the true heirs to Mumford & Sons. Give them a listen.

Anything Goes with Emma Chamberlain
I can't remember when I started tuning in to Emma Chamberlain on Youtube. Emma is life <3.

Aah! For the love of reading! Here are some that left a lasting impression.


Ever heard of the Samotsvety Group or Superforecasting? Nor did I, until this curious post - "How A Ragtag Band of Internet Friends Became the Best at Forecasting World Events" - popped up on my RSS Feed (that's where I read, and you can too!)

"How to Blow Up A Pipeline" was a Film Highlight a couple of months ago. So it was only natural for me to gravitate towards this one: "Why You Probably Shouldn't Blow Up A Pipeline"

David Perell

Friend, hardware engineer & fellow podcaster - Parth Saraswat - shared a blog post by Perell on Commitment. It's an absolutely terrific read: "Hugging the X-Axis"
