Review: I Am delivers a compassionate picture of schizophrenia

I Am follows a young woman named Gabi who is suffering from schizophrenia and also in the process of moving in with her boyfriend. Gabi has not told her boyfriend about her condition and she is struggling with managing it and trying to figure out how to tell him. We learn that this has not gone well for her in the past so she worries that once he knows, he’ll leave her.

Smudged Smile looks to bring awareness to depression in teens

You may remember a little over a year ago when I first introduced you to Oriane Pick through her web series Call it a Day. Well, my my friend across the pond at Candid Broad Productions is back with another project, but she will not be on-screen for this one. After the success of Call it a Day and the brilliant campaign behind I Am, Writer and Director Ella Greenwood reached out to Candid Broads to help bring her film Smudged Smile to life.

“I Am” seeks to paint a different picture of schizophrenia

Earlier in the year, I introduced you to Oriane Pick and Rachel Mariam through their web series Call it a Day.

What better way to do that than creating my own awards? 

Every 2019 Movie (ranked)

One of my goals for 2019 was to keep a running ranking of every movie I watched this year. That way I wasn’t spending too much energy trying to figure out how I felt about a movie from January when December rolled around. I still ended up shifting some of the movies at the end but it was much easier starting out with a baseline. 

1st Annual Bib’s Corner Movie Awards (shortlists)

With awards season upon us I find myself already being disappointed by the nominees. Many great performances and movies are being overlooked (as usual) and rather than being frustrated I’ve decided to do my part in making sure they’re recognized.

What better way to do that than creating my own awards?

Waves has a strong cast, headlined by Sterling K. Brown and rising star Kelvin Harrison, Jr. The first story is about toxic masculinity but both stories highlight how a lack of communication within a family can be devastating.
