    Brahms: The Boy II

    ½

    The ending of the original Boy is one of the worst endings I think i’ve ever seen, so I really wasn’t expecting much from its money grab sequel. However, I still felt somewhat let down. 

    Probably my least favourite genre of film is horror sequels that are purely made for box office and ticket buys but I tried to go into this with an open mind as I have, occasionally, been pleasantly surprised by some of The Conjuring films, for…

    ★★★★

    One of those films where it feels like every character is perfectly casted. Francis McDormand, Kate Hudson, Phillip Seymour Hoffman for the stature they have they’re all perfect in this.

    It goes without saying that the soundtrack is excellent, filled with classics and my personal favourites.

    Hitchcock created a community in which everyone had their roles. It’s just such a great film, I’m not sure how to describe it but this film felt like everything, to every small detail hit bullseye.

    ★★★★★

    This film is absolutely astonishing. I don’t think love has been portrayed in a film as well as Portrait of a Lady on Fire did. It sums up perfectly what it means to love someone, starting out with awkward looks and then slowly merging together over time to the point where you know how one another thinks and acts. 

    This film has so much meaning that I can’t wait to explore, this is my first time watching it so I…
