    LFF #24: You Can Find My Full Review Here.

    The Sisters Brothers is one of the most low-key and unconventional westerns that I've seen, bringing an incredibly talented cast to the table that includes the likes of Joaquin Phoenix, John C.

It's a heartbreaking slow burner of a film that makes an excellent use of the heavy Wong Kar-Wai influences that perpetuated Moonlight, giving it a vibrant, unique tone that helps it stand out from the crowd.

    Well, that was something special. I'm really glad that I watched The Umbrellas of Cherbourg the day before because there are clear influences from that masterpiece on Damien Chazelle. Together these two movies have made me far more invested in musicals than I was previously, with Bugsy Malone being another highlight but beyond that the list starts to get a bit thinner.

    Here La La Land follows on two people with big dreams. Mia (Emma Stone) is…
