I Lost My BodyDirector - Jeremy ClapinCast - Hakim Faris/Dev Patel, Victoire Du Bois/Alia ShawkatThe fact that it is called I Lost My Body and not I Lost My Hand is perhaps the most telling indication of the unique perspective that director Jeremy Clapin brings to his debut feature, about a severed hand’s epic quest across ‘90s Paris to reunite with the body from which it has been violently separated. Delicately animated and deftly written, Netflix’s I Lost My Body is one of the finest films of 2019; a stunningly original vision that will no doubt find tremendous love at the Oscars, just like it did at the Cannes Film Festival, where it premiered to warm enthusiasm over the summer. Watch the I Lost My Body trailer here A high school debate team would have a field day discussing its title, which immediately frames the narrative from the perspective of the decapitated hand, and not, as you’d expect, the entire human being who … [Read more...] about I Lost My Body movie review: Netflix delivers the best animated film of 2019; a stone-cold masterpiece

By Hannah Elliot When driving the 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S, there is a direct connection between aggression and battery life. The ride up Highway 2 to Newcombs Ranch restaurant, high above Los Angeles, loops you through hills until you’re 5,600 feet above sea level. It’s a thrilling location to test the Taycan, the perfect place to revel in its whopping strength and inexorable speed. It also sucked almost 40% of the total battery life. As I climbed past the signs to Wrightwood and the hairpin curve carved next to the lonely ranger station halfway up, I watched the charge seep out of the car like I was watching my fate unfold in an old-fashioned hourglass. Upon arriving at the top, as I parked next to the big white sign out front, I fretted: I may have cut it too close. Would this newfangled electric Porsche have enough juice to make the 40 miles all the way back down? Naturally, the Taycan used only 2% of battery on the way back down. The regenerative brakes, I must … [Read more...] about 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S: A stunning e-car with best-ever regenerative brakes at $185,000
Oscar-winning Brit director Sam Mendes rejoins the directing fray with this First World War action adventure which goes over the top in its visuals, but left me shellshocked by a lack of emotional involvement. Mendes has dedicated this passion project to his grandfather who served in the war, and has crafted a respectful, sincere, technically brilliant and all too beautiful film. I was so rapt by the majestic splendour of the trenches and battlefields I was dislocated from the drama. Taking place over two days and starting on April 6, 1917, George MacKay stars as Lance Corporal Schofield, whose sent on a desperate mission across no mans land to prevent 1,600 British troops from being massacred in a German trap. Among the hazards are mud, rats, snipers, planes and the German trenches, it’s no surprise their trenches are engineered to a notably superior quality than the British ones. MacKay doesn't put a foot wrong in his performance, but nor does he put his stamp on the film, … [Read more...] about 1917 review: Sam Mendes war drama has “lack of emotional involvement”
Is email the bane of your existence? An overwhelming number of people answer that question with a resounding, "Hell, yes!" Many of us struggle to keep up with the flood of new messages. Processing email on the go from a smartphone is one common way people tend to keep up with email. It's not necessarily the best solution to email overload, but it certainly is an option for keeping it at bay. To make that experience better, you need a killer mobile email app. Since the demise of the Mailbox app in late February of 2016, many mobile email users have been on the hunt for a replacement. Mailbox's signature productivity feature was swipe gestures for processing new messages in the inbox. The idea was to do something with a new message the first time you read it, whether you reply, snooze, file, or archive it. It's generally a net positive for your productivity to get in the habit of doing something immediately with messages rather than rereading them each time you look at your inbox. The … [Read more...] about The Best iOS Mail Apps
