    Under the Silver Lake

    ★★★½

    Not on the same level of quality as It Follows but still an admirable and extremely well made follow up from David Robert Mitchell. 

    Refreshingly unique and different, Under the Silver Lake is a thoroughly interesting watch. It has issues that hold it back from being great but it’s still an admirably original movie and I can’t wait to see what Mitchell does next.

    It Comes at Night

    ★★★★

    It may not be the horror many were expecting but this is one damn good movie. Well acted and directed, dripping in suspense and relentlessly bleak, this isn’t a fun or pleasant watch but it’s still a great film. Some have a problem with the film’s lack of answers but personally I really enjoyed the subtlety and overwhelming threat of the unknown. Also this has the most blunt and depressing ending of 2017. A must watch for any film fan.

    ★★

    Literally the most boring, badly acted, on the nose and flatly directed episode of Black Mirror.
