    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★½

    Full Review

    The other night I dreamt I was in a car with Jessie Buckley and Jesse Plemons. We talked about David Foster Wallace, sang songs from Oklahoma!, recited poems by Eva H.D, quoted Pauline Kael's unforgiving review of A Woman Under the Influence and criticised Freud's outdated views on homosexuality and perspectives on women.

The fact that both writers committed suicide is a mere coincidence, said José Luis Torres Leiva during the Q&A at the London Film Festival.…

    Imbued Life

    ★★★★

    The best thing about taxidermy is you can later make a stop-motion animated short film about taxidermy.
    Mysterious, nightmarish and incredibly beautiful, Imbued Life is about the idea not only of preserving life after death but also memories.
