    The House That Jack Built

    ★★★★

    This was an actual blast to watch. Genuinely one of the funniest movies of the year, and Matt Dillon gave a fantastic performance that had me lost in his role for 90% of it.

    Maybe one day i'll be able to adequately articulate why this is one of the greatest movies ever made, But the fact of the matter is that this is a once in a lifetime experience.

    I feel like this is going to slip under a lot of radars this year which is a shame because it was incredible. Every song was actually really good and catchy, and I immediately  wanted to download the soundtrack once the credits rolled (which is literally a first). That school dance sequence has got to be one of my favourite scenes in a film in forever.

    I've always had a big soft spot for coming of age films and this is going to be one I rewatch again and again
