The Fountain’s Reads of the Year 2018

Literature lovers were spoiled for reading choice this year (at least, this one was), with many titles mirroring our current world’s tumultuous state. 2018 was the centenary year of the birth of Scotland’s Muriel Spark, and the country rightly went to town, republishing her twenty-two novels including some which were previously out of print, thus giving us the opportunity to read titles we may have previously missed, and re-read our old favourites. The crème de la crème indeed. One hundred years before Spark’s birth, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was born and an incredible publishing achievement created, celebrated this year with many biographies and re-imaginings.

Review: Shoplifters Rating 95%

Review: Shoplifters

Earlier this year I reviewed Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-Eda's film The Third Murder. Departing from his traditional style, the main issue I had was that with this change, some of the greater emotional depth of his prior work did not quite make the transition. Now, within the same year (in the UK at least) he returns to familiar ground with Shoplifters, and with it comes the cementing of Kore-Eda as one of Japan's greatest filmmakers, living or dead.
