    ★★

    In rural England all men are rapists and all women are asking for it. Huge disappointment.

    Don't Look Now

    ★★★

    Predestination is a bastard. 

    This is mainly of interest for how it uses editing and camerawork to create a sense of dread and paranoia. 

    Also puts the city of Venice to great use. Did not imagine the place could be this creepy. 

    However, the story is flimsy and I sort of saw the whole thing coming even though I had been careful to avoid spoilers before watching. 

    Nonetheless enjoyable for its wonky 70ies surreal charm, even verging on the Lynchian in a few spots.

    Seen on the day that I personally received a very bad review. Has a huge amount to say about art, ego, criticism and the list goes on. After seeing this I felt the need to immediately start again. It's that dense. But at the same time the experience of watching it is just a delight.

    WTF did I just watch. Most of the Refn pieces are in place: solitary male lead, violence, electro soundtrack. But you won't see Gosling go to the places Hardy dares to go. Irresistible physical performance that is hard to look away from even if you'd often rather do so.
