    This might have been the most uncomfortable cinema experience I've ever taken on, yet there were indeed parts that were amusing, human and very well-made. My leg also went stiff. And the reason why it was uncomfortable was because, while I didn't shed much tears at the small lack of surprise I got from this film (since it is what people would consider a typical Ken Loach story which doesn't end nicely), it is meant to be a worst case…

    I really hope I don't end up sounding heteronormative here. I'm completely gay and I want to ensure anybody reading that I am analysing the emotions of everyone.

    Because I do feel that, other than being a film about a gay relationship in a different era, this is actually the film where I feel sorry for everyone, for being in such…

    Oof! I need ibuprofen after that. I like how much serious is it, but do I understand the story of Dune after the half-slow, half-rushed 1984 film, and then, this first part?

    This is so, so average. It could have been much more, but David Lynch can't do a blockbuster, like he could with Eraserhead and The Elephant Man. It started, it dragged, it had decent supporting performances, but no outstanding leads or dialogue from them to pick out from elsewhere, and that stern blue-eyed kid was weird, some cliched magic reveal happened, it ended! Denis better have two good films out of this material.

    Well, so many characters, so many arseholes. Delivered in good taste, a great form of storytelling (better than Shutter Island the previous night) and in some cases, sympathy, even though the coke-infused emotional connection proves to be false, replaced by moaning of being forced out of a life of crime and goes into divorce. Good, old yet mean caption endings.

    A special shoutout to the technical side, especially the sound mixers. Never has a gangster film sound so entertaining and enchanting. And fantastic improv with the famous steadicam shot. Why on Earth did my college tutors not teach me that?

    What beautiful animation and music for the cycle of life.
