    And, of course, there’s the fucking (or lack thereof), which is the film’s major disappointment. For a series whose central appeal is ostensibly pushing sexual taboos, Freed is shockingly chaste. I don’t recall a single sex scene being shown in its entirety, save a passenger-seat quickie that laughably comes after the couple loses a pursuing Hyde in a car chase.

    God's Own Country

It may not have the flash and academic sophistication of Call Me, but its working-class emotion and admirable delicacy make it one to watch."

By virtually every measure, it succeeds — whether it’s in Villeneuve’s careful, calculating directorial eye, Deakins’ sharp, distinct cinematography, or the film’s eye-popping visual design.

    It may seem premature to ascribe the word ‘masterpiece’ to the legacyquel of a heady sci-fi head-scratcher from the ‘80s, but its audacity and formal perfection – not to mention its thematic weight – leave no other alternative."
