  • Titane

    Titane

    ★★★★★

    Ducournau continues to break the boundaries of sexuality, taste and expectation with Titane. The film is sensual, violent and suggestive. It is unbound by genre and defies explanation. This is just something that needs to be experienced. Part of the reason why it’s so hard to explain is because it is a shapeshifter. It has shades of Lynchian sensuality and Cronenberg’s body horror madness, but it is also all Ducournau’s own. The film goes to places where it is impossible…

    A Clockwork Orange

    ★★★★★

    This is going to be a really long review because I love everything about A Clockwork Orange and I could go on and on about it. Plus I just saw it for the first time on the big screen in glorious 4K upgrade for its 50th anniversary and no matter how many times I watch it, I still find myself shaking my head at it in amazement. I love its endless visual flair, I love its cheeky use of music,…

    Amour

    ★★★★½

    Amour is a film that I thought I would never ever rewatch. It is an exquisite film building towards a shattering yet understated climax. Everything about it feels personal and considered, and executed with every detail calibrated perfectly. Yet another work of art from one of the most important artists in the cinema. It’s also a very difficult watch, but certain events and comparisons to Noè’s Vortex have led me to revisit this film.

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★½

    The French Dispatch is a stunning feat of visual entertainment. It draws inspiration from a number of real writers and is a homage to journalism. The plot is only vaguely relevant to the experience of watching the movie. Set in the 1970s, an editor, Arthur J Howitzer runs a magazine in a French town called Ennui at a loss for years, and we find him planning the latest issue without wanting to cut any of his staff’s written pieces.

    The Last Duel

    ★★★★

    The Last Duel manages to be a lot of things over the course of its 152-minute runtime. It’s a provocative political thriller set in 14th century Normandy. It’s a moral puzzle that reveals its secrets sparingly. It’s a beautifully shot drama that compares favourably to Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. It’s also an important film about misogyny. It’s about how throughout human history, women have been objectified, marginalised, and haven’t had rights that men enjoy.

  • Lamb

    Lamb

    ★★★½

    About midway through the film, a character asks “what the fuck is this?” And honestly same. WARNING: AVOID THE TRAILER. It pretty much spoils the first half of the film. I’m sure the secret of Lamb will be and have been spoiled for most future audiences, but it was one of the great joys of seeing it without prior knowledge of what was about to come. All you need to know is that Lamb hits a lot of the A24…
