Film Review: Foxcatcher is a Tragicomedy of Desperation


While most of the buzz is clamouring around Steve Carrell’s transformative role as the aloof and privileged John Du Pont, it’s actually Channing Tatum that anchors Foxcatcher. Bennett Miller uses icy detachment to spin the harrowing saga of the Schultz brothers, Mark (Channing Tatum) and Dave (Mark Ruffalo) who buy into the vision of America and its exceptionalism by millionaire John Du Pont (Steve Carrell). Miller found the story absurdly funny, and that dark humour finds... Read More


Editor’s Pick: Decadent Shearling Reading Socks

It’s nippy outside, so I’ve been opting to stay in some nights, curled up with a glass of Pinot and spending hours a little time watching Netflix. The best part is not the binge movie watching or the wine, or even wearing my faded, fourteen year old pajamas. It’s the socks. Cosy, shearling-lined, cable knit socks that keep my toes warm and calves snug. My original pair was gifted at an Indigo holiday media preview, but I’ve indulged in a second pair... Read More

VIFF Film Review: Whiplash is a Musical Adrenaline Rush


Vancouver International Film Festival finished with a bang with Whiplash, an excellent character study of a drummer pushed to the brink by his hardliner teacher. Whiplash poses the eternal question: how much will you sacrifice of yourself to become the greatest? It’s that provocation that fuels the relationship between Andrew (Miles Teller) and Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), who won’t stand for any mediocrity in his showcase competitive band at the Shaffer Musical Conservatory. There’s... Read More

We’re rethinking prints (in a good way) for Spring/Summer 2015 after taking in Masaba Gupta’s collection at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. The designer took inspiration from patakhas (firecrackers), which translated into fiery prints and whimsical hairpieces. Masaba, who recently concluded her tenure as creative director at Satya Paul, joined hands with beauty brand Fiama Di Wills for a somewhat strangely-themed collection – the clothes featured embellishments... Read More


VIFF Film Review: The Riot Club

TheRiotClubQuad VIFF

The Riot Club is a deliciously dark tale of the upper-class brats at Oxford’s famed “Riot Club.” The film follows them at their annual club dinner as they descend into debauchery and ultra-violence. Based on Laura Wade’s play Posh, the film retains her original bite in its portrait of the unbridled privilege of Riot Club members, who belong to Britain’s illustrious families. The film follows the new recruits: bad seed Alistair (Sam Caflin) and our... Read More
