Click on the linkage here to discover my latest review for The Slaughtered Bird. It’s a short film called Invoke, and it turned up on the website mysteriously absent the usual flurry of Twitter promotion. Could this be because I was very disparaging of the director, who was, unbeknownst to me, the very person who’d sent it in for review? Perhaps. But thanks to the Bird for not demanding a friendlier rewrite.
