    Meantime

    ★★★★½

    The humor, performances, authenticness, and language are the reasons to watch.

    Slang like “on the never-never”, “you rass”, “are you screwing me out?” “It really got your goat, didn’t it?” “Pipe down will ya?” “Ya rollock!” “Did you have a good kip?” Whether Brits still say these things now I couldn’t say.

    Arguably one of Mike Leigh’s funniest. Very little actually happens, there’s a lot of aimless hanging about. Unemployment paralysis is not a new condition.

    A Hitchcockian ‘man on the run’ story set in the year 2054, loosely based on the 1956 short story "The Minority Report" by Philip…

    CPH: Dox 2021 (ranked)

    Winner of Politiken's Danish:Dox Award. I’ll start off by saying I enjoy 80s post-punk/goth-rock but I’m not part of a goth community. There are different kinds of goths, I respect their freedom to express themselves. If you use goth make-up, hair and clothes, then I assume it’s harder to get a job, although the documentary only hints at this.

    Dark Blossom follows three Danish goth youths, Josephine, Nightmare and Jay, the trio are outsiders and friends.…
