Cassidy Anthony

Journalist and Film Academic

I'm a journalist, copywriter, film aficionado, magazine lover, and French speaker. My writing focuses on my passions, which include film scholarship, feminism, gender equality, and race representation in cinema, as well as many other cultural and social interests. I want to use my platform to speak about issues that matter and ones that have the ability to effect the masses on a daily basis.


I am a fast learner and can write effectively and succinctly about content that is even totally new or unfamiliar to me.

MA Film Studies Dissertation (First Class Honors)

‘Cinema of Suffering: Darren Aronofsky's Image of Suffering’

My dissertation explores the elements of Aronofsky’s directorial style that deem him an auteur, specifically focusing on his utilisation of the theme of suffering both on screen and off screen. This thematic suffering is analysed, ultimately revealing what Aronofsky’s emphasis on suffering tells us about cinema and society as a whole. The extent to which his work can be considered feminist is analysed and subsequently compared to overarching social issues, such as rape culture and the #metoo movement.
