Flicks Review

Sheer indulgence for film-lovers. Keanu Reeves acts as the guide for this riveting waltz through the ‘celluloid vs. digital’ debate, featuring so many contemporary cinematic greats; it’s like watching the dream guest-list for the Flicks Christmas Party. Gives equal weight to all sides of the argument, whilst never failing to fascinate, amuse and entertain.
