    This isn’t just one of the most spectacular and intelligent psychological thrillers of all time, it also has one of the greatest titles AND posters! I love this movie with my whole heart, perhaps even more so on a rewatch. I actually think it’s a serious contender to be my all time favourite movie. Everything about it is so damn immaculate. The atmosphere, the camerawork, the editing, the music, the acting, the stylistic choices, the darkness, the ambiguity! AHHHHHHHHHH COLIN…

    A feminist, Iranian disco-noir-vampire-western ??? FUCK YES IT IS !!! This was utterly fantastic. Such a unique twist on the oh-so overdone vampire movie. Deliciously shot, infectiously scored and the two lead performances are completely and utterly out of this world. Haunting, hypnotic, seductive. Lily Ana Amirpour excellently manages to intertwine the classic themes of the vampire genre with feminism and melodrama and then decides to throw in a dash of Western just for fun and boy oh boy does…

    A24 has done a LOT of soul-shaking stuff in their movies, but this one definitely disturbed me the most of them all. That entire final act was completely and utterly disgusting, and yet so entirely transfixing at the same time. The film spends a solid hour sinking its teeth into you. It’s slow. Meditative. Haunting. Hypnotic. Terrifying. I’ve never seen anything like it. Although it may be Alex Garland’s weakest film to date, there are certainly some elements of it…

    Having worked in various restaurants, this stressed me THE FUCK OUT! If somebody told me this was a documentary, I wouldn’t even begin to question it. It hit me on so many personal levels. An out of control chef, the endlessly annoying customers, the manager at breaking point, the struggling youngsters, the orders being unnecessarily sent back. It’s immaculate! The decision to shoot the film in a one-take style works flawlessly too. The levels of stress, tension and chaos are…

    (SPOILER FREE!)

    It’s so hard to discuss and analyse this without ruining things. One thing I will confidently say is that it well and truly lives up to the hype AND perfectly encapsulates the heart and soul of everything Spider-Man is about. So many emotional moments. So much stuff about what it truly means to be a hero. Tom Holland gives his best performance to date and Willem Dafoe is on FIRE. I’m going to watch this again before I’m…
