    'Twas the Fight Before Christmas

    ★★★

    Yeah, this is a bit mental.  

    Enjoyable, shocking and infuriating at the exact same time. 

    And (not meaning to offend any of my US peeps) this is best example of why it’s good not to be American there is… seriously.

    Now this really is superb. Loved the cold, slightly isolating feel to this. It’s so methodical and detached to a normal ‘character narrative’ that it take as little getting used to but it really bloody hits and hits well. Really enjoyed the cat and mouse aspect to it.

    And that final shot. Dunno why but it really leaves a mark.

    Knowing nothing about Jonathan Larson (I haven’t even seen RENT) this was a superb production. And a strong feature debut by Lin-Manuel Miranda. 

    Garfield will get all the plaudits and rightly so. Such an assured and emotional performance.

    Bold, brash and beautiful. As soon as you get on its wavelength this is quite the trip. Carax remains one of my favourite oddballs - this is so daring and risky but he pulls it off with such confidence as he whisks you away on this truly haunting tragedy.
