    Domino is my new favourite superhero.

    Antichrist

    ★★★

    Fascinating from the perspective of a director processing his own struggles with depression and nihilism, but it’s not much compelling beyond that. Handheld cinematography is flimsy amidst a host of editing errors, making it a bit of a mess in terms of craftsmanship. Not to mention that it gets exceptionally misogynistic. Not that I believe Von Trier is this kind of person - rather, I think he’s simply a man who tends to speak before he thinks. Antichrist could have benefitted from a bit more thought.

    ★★

    Perfect example of cinema by committee. The original was an artist having fun. This was a bunch of people figuring out how to capitalise on it. More Michael Bay than Guillermo del Toro.

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★½

    Managed to provide some smooth action, lush colour, and appropriate humour while treading nearly perfectly through some genuine thematic material. Ends up losing its balance by the end, but it made for enjoyable viewing nonetheless. A moderate step forward for the superhero genre, and a massive step forward for DC.
