For the Land

by Simon Isaac / 16th September 2017

God's Own Country is the most moving, touching and evocative film I have seen in an age. Not only has Francis Lee captured the intensity of two very different people falling in love and changing their lives, he's also shone a light...

Brutalism Disappearing

by Simon Isaac / 23rd July 2016

On my doorstep remain some unsung heroes of brutalist architecture, some have already gone. People seem to think the movement ugly, unworthy and a past that should be forgotten. I prefer to revere it, the forgotten, the mundane and invisible...
