    No Fathers In Kashmir

    ★★★

    Enjoyed this. Worth a watch, I’d say.

  • Just Mercy

    Just Mercy

    ★★★½

    Enjoyed this a lot; it’s quite biopic-y in places, but that’s not a problem particularly, and even then it’s a far more emotionally involved & poignant film than “quite biopic-y” makes it sound, just bursting with empathy. Great performances all round, but especially worth highlighting Rob Morgan, who is both a) astonishing and b) probably a little less likely to be discussed in all this. He’s really, really good - very memorable supporting performance. 

    (Plus, there’s something quite endearing about Michael B Jordan playing a soft-spoken, nerdy lawyer, despite still being very obviously ripped. That’s fun.)

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    I think JJ Abrams saw the ironic appreciation people have come to have for the prequels, and, in going full tilt in pursuit of that, created the Riverdale of Star Wars movies.

    Little Women

    ★★★★

    A nice film! It took me a little while to get used to the two timelines - and to get past the sheer, seething rage I feel whenever I see Timothée Chalamet; he knows why - but there’s clearly a lot of warmth, a lot of wit, and a lot of artistry to the film. Period dramas so often feel staid and distant; Little Women is immediate and bursting with heart.
