a lament: the movement magician of second year

Carissa Lee
No comments

I am an awkward-as-fuck baby giraffe of a human being. It’s not that I’m uncomfortable in my body, I like to think that I’m so insanely comfortable, that I forget about my surroundings, leaving me susceptible to bumping into things and tripping on uneven ground. I like to drag my feet because I love indulging in…

lip lit: always watching

Erin Stewart
No comments

All books have an aim. Sometimes the author clearly states the aim, sometimes they gradually find it. Regardless, the reader goes on a journey through the realisation of that aim. Whether it be to explore small town life through a love story or to solve a murder mystery where the detective holds an enticing secret,…

To Rome With Love is a collection of stories set in the beautiful Italian capital, with a brilliant cast and a good dose of Woody Allen humour and storytelling to its name. These stories have no noticeable connections other than their setting, but the city of Rome is captured in such a way that ensures…

small screen sirens: medical dramas, and why they have no pulse

Sophie Overett
No comments

A few weeks ago, I curled up on the couch prepped to watch the premiere of The Mindy Project, a new half-hour medical dramedy written by and starring the always-charming Mindy Kaling. I’ve been a pretty huge fan of hers since the better days of The Office and to see her in her own project,…

film review: argo

lip magazine
No comments

“Ah go fuck yourself”* This line would seem to sum up the United States’ attitude to many things in recent years – take the government/CIA’s attitude to any country that had oil/information worth exploiting (and anyone who might have gotten in the way of this) – and Hollywood’s attitude to anyone outside of Hollywood. However,…

lip magazine
No comments

Perfect Sense is the ideal love catalyst for our emotionally repressed generation.  It’s rare to find a film that effectively questions the reality of love, humanity and illness, but this film orchestrates all of these elements perfectly. Ewan Mcgregor and Eva Green combine their superb acting talents to portray the lives of two unlikely lovers,…

film review: the words

Natalie Salvo
No comments

The Words is based on an excellent premise. If you were a fledgling writer (although artist, musician or another job could also be added here) what would you do if you were unsuccessful at your craft? If you had spent years lovingly working away at things and were faced with a constant stream of rejection,…

film review: hope springs

Rosie Hunt
No comments

Hope Springs opens with Kay (Meryl Streep) sheepishly attempting to suggest she and her husband of thirty-one years might like to share the same bed for once— a feat at which she fails miserably. This moment just about sums up her marriage to Alfred (Tommy Lee Jones), which has become predictable, unromantic and bereft of closeness of…
