Make Up ★★★★

What a beguiling but curiously offputting film this is. For a long time watching it, I found myself projecting where it would end up, but the way it's constructed is so even in its progression - any scenario would have been ok.
The actual outcome is excellent - it elevates the film and viewer to a state of the euphoria felt by the wonderful lead Molly Windsor.
I found myself liking the film a lot more in reflection too.
And it's a first feature too. Bravo.
