    I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

    ★★★½

    Melanie Lynskey is perfect as Ruth, a woman with only one wish: "For people to not be assholes."

  • Lucan

    Lucan

    ★★½

    I've been fascinated with Lord Lucan's crime for decades so I was eager to watch this but I came away disappointed. Christopher Eccleston is very good as the utterly creepy John 'Aspers' Aspinall, a wealthy club owner with a personal zoo who may have played a part in Lord 'Lucky' Lucan's disappearance but this British TV production doesn't do the fascinating true story justice. There's a really good film to be made about Lucan and the elite powerful circles he traveled in but this isn't it.

    Manchester by the Sea

    ★★

    I would have liked this so much more if it had no soundtrack, was called Maintenance by the Sea and we spent the entirety of the film watching Casey Affleck's character unplug toilets, fix sinks, shovel snow and get in occasional bar fights.

  • The Invitation

    The Invitation

    ★★★★

    The Invitation is one of the best films I've seen this year with an impressive central performance from Logan Marshall-Green. Grief and malaise run rampant in the Hollywood Hills turning a dinner party among old friends into a incredibly unnerving and flat out creepy affair.The atmosphere of dread and unease that permeate the proceedings is so thick you can cut it with a serving knife thanks to Karyn Kusama's taught direction & Theodore Shapiro's eerie score. A great slow-burn horror feast…
