    Practical Magic (1998) d. Griffin Dunne
    With such a stellar cast of Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Stockard Channing, Dianne Wiest & Aidan Quinn, I can't help but admire the complete lack of magical spark here, in this witchy film that doesn't seem to settle on a genre or tone.

    The Ice Storm (1997) d. #AngLee
    The cold/empty world the Carvers & the Hoods inhabit will no doubt hold some at arms-length. Further viewing will be rewarded by an appreciation of the intelligent script, precise production/costume details, superb cinematography & flawless acting.

    Little Joe


    Little Joe (2019) w/d. Jessica Hausner. Alice (#EmilyBeecham), Chris (#BenWhishaw) & Bella (#KerryFox) work for an experimental plant breeders. But is their new plant changing people's moods? Beautifully shot: striking framing/use of colour. But was not taken with plot/dialogue.

    Dr Jekyll & Sister Hyde


    Dr Jekyll & Sister Hyde (1971) d. Roy Ward Baker. A virologist gets sidetracked into creating an elixir of life & unexpectedly transforms into a beautiful but deadly woman. This @hammerfilms take on #JekyllandHyde + Burke & Hare and Jack the Ripper. A sexy well-shot chiller.
