    Brexit: The Uncivil War

    ★★½

    This kinda reminded me of an Armando Iannucci film but completely void of it's wit and biting satire. What you have left is actually just kind of grim and frightening. I really enjoyed the U.S.S.

Honestly might rank among the dumbest and nonsensical films I've seen this year. Thinks and acts like it's some grand cosmic horror masterpiece but is anything but. I've even seen trailers for this on TV. I'd think if Netflix had any sense they would attempt to bury this as it's a major disappointment. I read…
