  • This Is Where I Leave You 2014

    ★★★ Watched 29 Oct, 2014

    Anyone familiar with the many other "Dysfunctional family get together for an event which causes several problems, opens old wounds, creates arguments ending in heartfelt togetherness" movies will find nothing here to surprise them and even in ending up liking the film as much as I did it's easy to tell that this is at times as generic as they come.

    Four years after In Bruges Martin McDonagh returns to deliver a truly bonkers farce filled with wonderful meta-humour carried excellently by maybe the best ensemble cast this year.

    Hilarious dialogue that I've been quoting since i got out of the cinema, just as good as In Bruges at times. Rockwell steals the whole thing with an energetic and mad performance. Gets all the best lines and orchestrates the best scene in the film. His campfire tale is a colossus that…
