Eirys X Files #1 – July Children

After sending out the first issue of my new email newsletter, the Eirys X Files, I realised that it won’t be likely for any new subscribers to find me if I don’t put the content out in public, at least at the beginning, as long…

Seen: Yves Saint Laurent No 1

A few weeks ago I finally saw Yves Saint Laurent by Jalil Lespert with upcoming star Pierre Niney in the titular role. It was the production design that blew me away most, but more about that later. The film is a classic biopic that doesn’t…
