    The Bachelors

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    THE STORY IN ONE LINE:
    A grieving father and son find love after the loss of their wife/mother, and try to move on.


    WHAT WORKED:
    Loved the opening scene.
    Lovely performance by J K Simmons.
    The dinner scene towards the end, where Wes explodes was well-acted.

    WHAT DIDN'T WORK:
    The scene where Lacy gifts Wes a car seat. I didn't even know his car was missing a seat. Also, shot division in that scene, especially where he turns to hug…

    Revenge

    ★★★★

    Loved this film. Very well-shot and well edited. Shot division was great. Glorious bloodbath of a film.

    However, a few things were vague. What does this boyfriend do? Why does she want to go to LA? Where does this story take place? If this was taking place in the US, then him asking her to move to Canada would've made sense. But seeing the number of French speaking people, I assumed this was happening somewhere in Europe.

    However, loved the film. Very engaging screenplay. A very confident debut by the director.
