    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    ★★★★★

    Magical, emotional, brutal, enchanting, textural, complex, spiritual, visually unbelievable, gory. 

    I thought it would be a bit dated but this film is a fucking masterpiece! A genuine crying mess I was.  

    Frodo’s my favourite so far & the evil guy who looks like Michael Haneke. Obviously Gandelf & Viggo & actually all of them.

    Jack Black is so infectious! I’ve seen this many times & will continue to! So damn funny & heart cosy.

    Jack Black’s amazing singing voice!

    The whole film had a very creepy/scary feel to it, that was definitely achieved. I was nervous to be watching which is great. The ending is haunting as fuck and the sound design really grabs and twists your beating heart and your terrified attention there. Performances weren't too bad. You are left feeling an intensity.

    I was interested to see that Rose Mcgowan didn't write the script. For some reason I thought she would have. I'm more interested in her…

    The character of Karen is another great, deep woman written & directed by Lars! & portrayed powerfully by Bodil Jørgensen. The camerawork is beautiful too, the low grade tape quality made it feel like a moving painting. One to watch for low budget filmmaking inspiration. The fact this was nominated for a Palme D'or is actually pretty cool. Since I have to anyway, this film reminds me of the benefits of working under constraint. It has more unusual energetic power than most.

    I also found the scene where the woman gets taken away by her father to be interesting.
