    What a strange movie.

    I Think We're Alone Now

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    What a relief to see something from the post-apocalyptic genre bracket that doesn't immediately involve zombie armies or fortified compounds full of marauding cannibals. It's not all peaches and cream for our protagonists, of course, but the relative lack of sudden ultra-violence made the whole experience surprisingly much more enjoyable and compelling to me.

    (Seen at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.)

    ★★★

    Briskly paced edutainment on the very real dangers of being a teenage U2 fan and the not inconsiderable perks of having a particularly skilled dad.

    Gone Girl

    ★★★★

    David Fincher is one of, if not the most confidently skilful director currently working in Hollywood. Now watch him punch way below his weight with this cynically entertaining thriller that at no point seriously tackles any of its many subject matters. Yay!
