EIFF 2019: Schemers (2019) dir: David McLean

This Dundee-set drama is based around the early days of music promoter David McLean’s career. While rather underbudgeted, it makes up for it somewhat via its undeniable spunk and energy. Starring Conor Berry, Tara Lee, Sean Connor and Grant R. Keelan.

BlacKkKlansman (2018) directed by Spike Lee

The Do the Right Thing director returns to form with a more poised and deliberate, yet still powerfully relevant, look at racism in America. John David Washington is a livewire revelation as Ron Sallworth, a black man who talks his way into the KKK in the 1970s.

EIFF 2018: George Michael: Freedom - Director’s Cut (2017)

The much-admired British pop star was working on this autobiographical documentary up until his untimely death, after which it was completed by his friend David Austin. The result works better as a tribute to the artist's talent and showmanship than it does as a deeper portrait of the man.
