We are a duo of blazing young writers of screenplays, prose, and poetry and all round literati. The Critical Grasp provides film reviews that are more in-depth than your typical major newspaper or site review, and hopefully more entertaining to boot. What interests us? Cultural significance, the battlefield of ideology, sex, the end of the world, sex again, love, pain, transcendence, hilarity, and genuinely moving stories – mashed up together and in no particular order.
Find in the CRITICAL GRASP category our staple articles that open some parts of the body of a film. Poking around in there, we hope to show you something that will enthrall, disturb, and ravish you.
Find in the KILLER GRASP category articles not for the faint of heart. Here, no punches will be pulled; the thinking caps get put on as we take out the innards and brood over them with our coffee and tea.
Finally, find in the SEXUAL GRASP category articles pertaining to sex. Are the Aliens movies fundamentally about the terror of the vagina (think of those pods!)? Is a film with Catherine Zeta Jones worth seeing even if it sucks (cough no reservations cough)? We’re prepared to explore, and take you along for the ride.
We hope you enjoy it.
