Film and television – a mid-year review

Seen anything good on the tele lately...?!?!

Me neither. That's why I borrow films and tele series' from the library! It's a much better way of being in control of what you're actually watching during screen time, and you can tailor your viewing to perfectly suit your taste and your timetable, WIN-WIN and, no more infomercials!!

And it's really just about good old-fashioned storytelling isn't it!? For me, film and television is a coming-together of multiple artforms that, when it's done well, has the ability to move you at a level many other artforms might not individually. 

So here's a list of the best films and series' that I've had the pleasure of viewing this year, so far - many more to come!

2018 - The Best of Film and Television

List created by DevilStateDan

These are the best films and television series' that I have explored throughout the year so far, all available to you through Christchurch City Libraries membership.







A family of privileged white Americans meet for a very posh dinner to discuss an incident that involved their children. The details slowly emerge as the film unfolds and explores the issues of parenting, mental health, social navigations etc. Great performances from the four lead actors.
