    Can't write a review about this one as I'm not supposed to talk about it.

    The Irishman

    ★★★★★

    So many compelling elements to this, but the deepest and most moving one that struck me on this rewatch was the love a little girl had for her father, and how that love slowly diminishes and is replaced by fear and resentment as the film unfolds.

    Scorsese’s talent for balancing these themes alongside everything else that’s going on is a level of craftwork seldom seem by his peers and contemporaries.  Hence why he is the greatest living American filmmaker still working.

    Last Man Standing

    ★★

    25 years later and still, with all of the information available, the murders of 2pac and Biggie are still unsolved. 

    Nick Broomfield, an ardent pursuer of the truth, continues his journey to uncover what happened, but it’s clear he’s hit a wall. Reverting to secondary talking heads who dare not say too much on the sub jct in fear of retribution, alas the entire documentary is cumbersome in executing anything palpable. 


    Maybe it’s time Brookfield finds a new topic to cover, as it clear he’s at a creative stumbling block with these cases.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★★

    Watching Tenet again was very much like a first time viewing, perhaps that’s the point: a temporal pincer manoeuvre of movie watching? Having experienced Tenet already, (perhaps) I had the wherewithal to deconstruct it’s somewhat paradoxically challenging concept this time around. Or, perhaps it was my second viewing that made me realise that I had not actually seen it yet? 

    Ok, I’m trying to be clever, and whilst I’m no Chris Nolan, I certainly felt I got much more out of…

    If you haven't seen Jaws, you're dead to me.

    Lindsay Anderson's If.... could quite possibly be the unofficial prequel to Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange
