    The Souvenir: Part II

    ★★★★

    Measured and gentle. Joanna Hogg and Honor Swinton Byrne make Part II at least as compelling as Part I, if not more so.

    Pennies from Heaven

    ★★★★½

    Hoskins gives an impressive performance. Potter's edgy writing and the contrapunctual use of musical numbers that represent the dreams and inner dreamscapes of the main character make this a highly original classic.

    ♫ pre-dict-able plot-lines and chee-sy ro-man-ces

    o-ver-hyped clas-sics and mu-si-cal dan-ces

    mild-ly an-noy-ing small chil-dren who sing

    that will ne-ver be my fa-vo-rite thing ♫

    ... but, hey, it's hard to really, truly hate this.

    The quintessential thriller, Fincher's masterwork hasn't been matched since. By not witnessing the murders, the audience retains the perspective of the protagonists. Like them, we experience only the aftermath of the gruesomeness while the real impact of the film comes from the menacing (and classically noir) mood of hostility and complete and utter despair, brilliantly supported by both style, plot and characterization, all crystalizing the bleak theme of a world in utter disrepair. Perfection.
