Crime

Clean

I grew up in New York City. From a young age I was struck by the impact of poverty, drugs and violence afflicting those around me. Although the city has changed, I am still troubled […]

Drama

Sundown

One of my favourite TV series was Lie to Me. It was such a fun twist on a police / legal procedural, primarily because it wasn’t a police / legal procedural but it followed the same […]

Action

Red Notice

How do you make a perfect action comedy popcorn flick designed to provide pure entertainment for 2 hours? You put Dwayne Johnson, Ryan Reynolds, and Gal Gadot together in a film written by Rawson Marshall […]
