    Day 9 | Film #19 @ C.I.F.F. 2018

    I quite enjoy this upsurge in (usually small, indie) films with headstrong, outspoken female leads, such as Izzy Gets the Fuck Across Town, Lady Bird, Mr Roosevelt and now All About Nina. Although all of these films and their respective protagonists vary significantly of course, they are similar in that the characters all seem to act larger than life because of some kind of unresolved fundamental conflict.

    The complaints against this film are just as telling and predictable as the film itself. 'Professional critics' and 'cinephiles' alike are quick to point out the fact that this film is the culmination of "10 years of 18 movies" – as if to say "Look how long we've let this shit go on!" – yet they still have not learned a damn thing.
