    I Kill Giants

    ★★★★

    Like a mashup of Tideland and Where The Wild Things Are. There are parts of I Kill Giants that feel a little on the nose, but damnit, there's something in my eye at the end and the image of a 12-year-old girl with a huge hammer facing down death itself couldn't be timelier.

    Murder on the Orient Express

    ★★★

    Branagh's re-enactment feels exactly like one. He spends a lot of work and CGI to recreate the look, but mostly fails to make it come alive; a lot of good actors are stuck ticking plot boxes in rather interchangeable mustaches and period dresses. The finale is effective, though.

    Eh it's just a gimmick movie and woohoo he's following a child actor over 12 years and godfuckingdamnit why am I crying when the worst thing that happens is that time passes and it's all kind of beautiful in its mundanity?

  • The Square

    The Square

    ★★★★

    Still not sure if Östlund's satire is that of a cold-hearted cynic or someone outraged at society, though this makes me lean slightly more toward the former. Then again, part of the beauty of The Square is that it asks the audience to fill in its own moral - ironically, much like the art it satirizes. In the meantime, it's funny and cringey as hell, as you'd expect.
