FilmSpace was at the 73rd Edinburgh Film Festival. Film critic Calum Cooper concludes reviews from the festival with his take on Agnes Varda’s final documentary, a gripping debut from Josephine Mackerras, a hard-hitting biopic on identity, and the festival’s closing film.
Varda by Agnes – ★★★★☆
Analysis: After the Cineworld stooshie, can we put Scotland’s real history on the big screen?
Robert the Bruce created a public debate about Scotland’s history being shown in cinemas – but have we exhausted the medieval Scotland mine?
THE dust is finally settling on an episode that might be more cynically described as a successful marketing campaign than a controversy.
