Small Axe (2020)

One of the most exciting releases of the year comes in the form of Steve McQueen’s Small Axe anthology series. Consisting of five films that explore the racial tensions during the late twentieth century in the West Indies community London, Small Axe is an achievement worthy of much awards discussion. I have written on McQueen’s previous feature films which you can read here. With Small Axe, McQueen only proves further why he is one of the most exciting and fearless directors working today.

Since their release, I have been working my way through the Small Axe reviews and will link them below for easiness. Having them all in this post will make the website look a lot tidier so for my thoughts on each individual film, simply click on the film names below!

Here are the links to my reviews for each of the Small Axe films:
