    Kanye West: Late Orchestration

    ★★★½

    Poor editing, rubbish crowd, fantastic performance. As other users have noted, could've done with some of LRs' more emotional tracks like Roses or Hey Mama in place of tracks like Crack Music

    Task #18: Watch a film featured in The Celluloid Closet PREFERABLY LGBTQ+ RELATED

    Really enjoyable road trip movie, with some great lead performances, killer soundtrack and some gorgeous cinematography of the Aussie outback. Some of the supporting character acting feels a little forced, but how strong the main 3 are more than makes up for it.

    Task #28: a film with Johnny Cash in the soundtrack

    A brilliantly acted, well crafted crime drama. Despite the 3 hour runtime it didn't really drag at any point, although I feel it could've some with a little more in terms of action sequences (not as of Scott can't direct these) to make the 1st half a little more exciting.

    You know those music videos where its like 4 mins of 'plot' + 4 mins of a song? This is like one of those dragged over 90 mins.
