A New Year’s Eve (eve eve eve) must watch
An interesting take on Ted Bundy, showing the story of his murder trials from the perspective of his first wife. The director doesn’t glamorize Ted, but you do understand why his wife was questioning her own gut instinct almost to the end. In terms of his serious roles, this is the best I’ve ever seen Zac Efron, and Lily Collins too. Because of this unique take, I imagine this film might be divisive... but it will definitely get you talking afterwards!
Feels right to kick off 2019 (and my resolution to use letterboxd) with a modern movie that looks to the past. My classic film loving heart was full of joy as Laurel & Hardy were brought back to life by the wonderful Coogan & Reilly. This film is both a celebration of the comedic duo’s friendship, and an honest look at the ups and downs of creative collaboration.
