My review of “Citadel” is posted. The following is an excerpt and you can read the entire review at www.film-review.org. Written and directed by Ciaran Foy, "Citadel" piques our interest by not completely letting us in on whatever is going on until well past the halfway point.

Unfortunately, its secrets are not entirely worth the wait. #movies#film#cinema#citadel#aneurinbarnard#amyshiels#wunmimosaku#jamescosmo#ciaranfoy

This is the main argument why some viewers may find 'SS-GB' slow, boring, confusing, and anything but interesting. Where in reality, 'SS-GB' is everything BUT those adjectives; it’s is easily one of the most intelligent shows out there and if you don’t agree I’ll battle you in a duel...⠀ Read the full review on CinemaParadiso.co.uk!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #moviereview#filmreview#ssgb#thriller#filmnoir#britishcinema#samriley#maevedermody#jamescosmo#director#philippkadelbach#dvd#bluray#cinephile#moviebuff#moviecommunity#blurayaddict#drama#miniseries#tvseries
