It wasn't difficult to convince me to watch an independent documentary on stray cats in Istanbul for an hour and twenty minutes but it's much more than a cat lover's favourite documentary film. Kedi (feline) is as much floff as it is philosophy and about the nature of not only these animals but the people who coexist with them and I can't say I've seen a purer film in my life or been so caught off-guard by the hardships and trials each individual cat's story tells.

I'd say Edgar Wright's Baby Driver was like a musical without the song and dance but, well... there is song and dance. Not in a traditional sense, or exactly like a musical because that word still strikes fear into a lot of film-goers and I disagree but you know, I get it. Baby Driver is like a musical in the undeniable rhythmic feel of the film, there's a great soundtrack that integrates into each scene, which I'm always a sucker for, especially in this instance where it seems to signify more than just the tempo.
