barely coherent thoughts on films, if and when they happen!
Finally got round to watching this. I quite liked the first film but maybe today I'm just not in the mood to deal with posh people because this was an absolute pile of wank.
I thought that Powell & Pressburger finale was going to finish the film on a high note but it just felt so hollow, as did all the self-reflexivity
oh my goodness this was pure magic. the use of desplat's incredible score almost as elisa's dialogue makes this film unlike any other. sally hawkins' gives an affecting and heartbreakingly beautful performance and michael shannon is just the perfect villain.
guillermo del toro is an absolute master at making completely inhumane monsters conjure up the most humane emotions in the audience.
