    ★★★

    A provocative twist on the Dirty Harry formula in that it sees Clint playing a cop caught in a body count thriller that basically operates as a riff on Cruising but with mostly hetero dynamics. I say “mostly” because there’s literally a scene in which Clint's character alludes candidly to having homosexual experiences and I’m not too sure how the film isn't more known for this(!).

    ★★★★

    Still one of the most utterly indefinable, compellingly frustrating and infinitely intriguing films I've ever seen. And even as someone who is completely detached from religion, I find that The Ninth Configuration has much more to say about theological grappling than all 161 minutes of Scorsese's Silence.

    Plus it includes a character who is adapting Shakespeare plays for dogs ("It's a labour of love, but damn it, someone has to do it!").

    R.I.P. William Peter Blatty.

    An exquisite and thoughtful unravelling of Frida Kahlo's life, even though it should maybe have focused a little more on her relationship with her actual art.
