    Lucky enough to catch this (thanks for programming this, Sundance) - and what a special film. It's poignant and hilarious all in this style that I find hard to describe. It's all Riley. If you loved Art of Self Defence, step into this world. It's really something quite special. And the score! My heart. Oh, it looks great too. Just see it. Add it to your list for 2022. In this strange world, things like this are a wonderful gift.

    I fucking loved it. Don’t worry, I’m not going into spoilers, just feelings.

    Tenet is big and loud and brash. The soundtrack, care of Ludwig Göransson (he scored Black Panther and The Mandalorian), is going to be on my headphones a lot this year.

    I don’t want to tell you much about it, because I want you to experience it how I did. But one thing that’s worth pointing out is that Nolan has dropped a lot of his usual…

    Stunning treatment of a topic that elevates it to places I never thought I'd go. Bleak and dark but also everything that is not bleak and dark. Wonderful.
