  • The Father

    The Father

    ★★★★★

    Before now I’ve always felt a bit let down from films based on plays, especially of this pedigree. For the most part I feel they never use the medium of film to their advantage, gladly The Father does and as such knocks it out of the park. 

    Appropriate editing and well timed music emotionally invested me into this film. It masterfully plays with genre and cinema itself to create characters that really broke my heart. My devastation was helped along by the…

  • Babette's Feast

    Babette's Feast

    ★★★★★

    I absolutely loved this. It's a film that has been on my list for years, and is often regarded as one of the best 'Foodie films'. With how much I ended up loving Chef (2014) that's a pretty big claim to fame and I must say it exceeds it. Babette's Feast is a rather humorous and simple story, regarding a pious group of faithful and a cook who just wants to serve. The film takes it's time getting to the…

  • Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

    Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

    ★★★★

    No words can encapsulate how I felt watching this. Do not let the talking animal and cheery aesthetic fool you. This is not a movie for kids, its very , much an adult animated film.

    It deals with themes of drug abuse, addiction, racism and deals with them well. At times it's quite shocking, other times its quite violent and other times it can go into straight horror. I ended up enjoying it enough but I also didn't really know…

  • In The Heights

    In The Heights

    ★★★

    In the past few years I’ve gotten to really liking musicals. There’s something incredibly emotive and visceral about them that just entrances me. Like comedy films, I watch musical films to be taken away by the score, dance and singing. In The Heights however did not give me that emotional core that I was so longing for.

    The film is technically competent, all it’s pieces work well enough together, and there are some sensational set pieces but man for one…

  • Black Is King

    Black Is King

    ★½

    What a messy and thrown together product. For some reason I was quite looking forward to this, a visual album showing the ties between the Lion King story and the Black struggle through history is a noble pursuit but Beyonce inserts herself into the narrative far too often for it to have any sustainable punch. 

    The mix of songs and Lion King lines is really weird that didn’t sit with me, and I wondered throughout it all what the real…

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    Wow. i’m thinking of ending things will no doubt be a very divisive film, especially seeing as it’s accessibility will go through the roof by being on Netflix.I imagine some will hate it and others will love it without much space in between. It’s an intentionally confusing and at times frustrating film that l think you have to be in the right mood for, or at least know what you’re getting yourself into. I’m aware of and enjoy Kaufman’s work…
