  • I, Tonya

    I, Tonya

    ★★½

    This was altogether not good. The unconventional narrative structure aimed high but struck out. Margot also was playing a character but it didn't seem at all Tonya Harding. The build-up to the supposed incident is fine but after that, the film sort of floats to the very end and I was just waiting for it to end. Good for Margot producing films but perhaps she could've chosen a better project in my honest opinion.

  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    ★★½

    A lot of ambition and risks that are carelessly handled. Frances is good but in no revelatory. McDonagh does not understand the contemporary American experience, he expects one character to have a redemption but early mistakes made by the character made me unable to forgive him and caused me to be sorely off-put by the feature.

    Personal Shopper

    ★★★★½

    Stewart will always be known for Twilight and at this point I've moved on from arguing how great she is so everytime I see her I'm not surprised my her talent. Shopper is arguably the greatest use of Stewart so far and Assayas knows her natural charisma brings so much to each role she plays. The film was such a well paced and quietly thrilling film I might have to watch it more times.

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★½

    This movie was made for the money and clearly not that much effort was put into it as the executives expected us to feel Star Wars warmth again. The cast is mixed to awful and characters are nameless figures completing a mission we know the result of giving us no stakes in the lives of these characters.
