    Stunning. Utterly stunning.

    THIS is what a meet cute romance should look like on film in 2023. So natural, fun, cheeky, flirtatious and yes, cute.

    Such an impressive directorial debut. The use of South London is brimming with pride and belonging. And the two leads have the best chemistry that I've seen on screen for years. I'd snog them both. Even with the normally annoying fish eye lense.

    A modern masterpiece.

    So stylish. Every frame is meticulously constructed with incredible amounts of care and skill. Park as a director can be added to the evolving line of Hitchcock, De Palma and Fincher.

    Spectacular. And seemingly effortless too.

    Relentlessly brutal. Not exactly enjoyable. But certainly committed.

    Excellent cinematography and pretty decent effects, given the presumably small budget. Great use of limited resources and a challenging location.

    Still feels fresh. Laugh out loud funny, sends up the genre perfectly, and Cage is excellent.

    Yet another of Godard's films about men trying to talk women into sleeping with them. It's all very intellectual of course, yet quite easy to go along with.
