    The Lost Daughter

    ★★★★

    This ticks a lot of boxes:
    Olivia Colman de🤛🏼Liv🤛🏼Ers.
    Seems like Maggie Gyllenhall is a director who really knows how to direct her actors (yep, makes sense). Beautiful scenery and sunshine with dark swirling currents of sex, jealousy, guilt, repressed memories, loneliness and selfishness all hanging thickly in the air. You can feel the heat in this film. As oppressive as the clasping arms of a needy child, & yeah, that’s another great thing about this- it is a refreshing portrayal…

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★½

    What’s with all the snarky reviews? This was hugely enjoyable. What could be a depressing indictment of the problem with electing self-serving, quasi-fascist idiots into government when there is a global threat such as Climate Change manages to be funny and even moving. Yeah it’s on the nose but it’s a great ride. The Dont Look Up/ Look Up politicised binary felt like an especially fun bit of satire in these Brexit Plague lands.

    Uggghhh I *really* hated this. The main character had no actual character traits, just “pink bits in hair”. The set up was so annoyingly filmed, like having her see something & gasp but not showing us what it was. Style over substance, a central relationship (with her dead best friend) that felt completely phony, awful shoegazy whiny American alt-rock as the soundtrack, the magic realism set pieces that were just...boring... ugh. I gave up an hour in.

    I knew the edit felt weird and wrong... now we know why. Let Andrea Arnold do her thing dammit
