    Roxanne, Roxanne

    ★★★

    Roxanne, Roxanne is a pretty enjoyable biopic! Biopics aren't really my thing but was pretty impressed with the performances, set design and costume design in this. Lush warm colours bathe the cast casting deep shadows, just enough to linger just where you want them. I just wish it had more to say about the real driving force behind this picture, masculinity and misogyny. I wish it told us more about this clearly influential artist. Could of been great.

    Normally I would go into a film completely blind, I've always found that this was for the best as it enables you to react more naturally to the events on screen. However, I went into Foxcatcher knowing the basic premise and found that it added so much to my viewing.

    I'm going to say it now, Bennet Miller's Foxcatcher is one of the greatest sports films of all time. I went in with no expectations, I'm not a sports fan…
