    All My Friends Hate Me

    ★★★★

    All My Friends Hate Me feels like Shiva Baby meets The Invitation, continuing the newly burgeoning (and extremely specific) sub-genre that is the social anxiety horror comedy. It takes conventions of both genres to immaculately capture the feeling of social anxiety, yet also manages to cleverly skewer the very people who will find it so relatable.

    There was a brief period during which Christopher Nolan was my favourite working director. Coming off of The Dark Knight and Inception, Chris and his writing partner Jonathan Nolan had just made two of my top 25 favourite films of all time. Since separating from his brother, I've enjoyed Nolan's films less with each entry. Tenet is no exception.

    Nobody likes when a movie holds their hand. We like to feel like we're doing a bit of the work when…
