    LFF film #4
    Cine Lumiere

    I’m going to do something I don’t really do on here, I’m going to tell a personal story. When I was younger I was considered a “problem child” it was just me and my mum and I was so badly behaved that I overheard her speaking to other members of my family about how she wanted to kill herself because of it. Of course, she’ll never admit that to me and luckily she didn’t go…

    LFF film #7
    Embankment Garden Cinema

    You know that feeling when a relationship ends? Where everything feels like it’s all just disappeared? That feeling of loss, not just the relationship with that person but the friends, the family and the personal connections you’ve built up with those people? That’s what Marriage Story feels like. It’s beautifully painful, agonisingly funny in the most natural way. There’s comedy within the pain, but that’s life, isn’t it? With every low moment there has…

    ★★★★½

    When I was a child, my father used to tell me stories of Ken Miles. Used to speak of him as if he was his god. I had the ‘66 Le Mans drilled into me, I’ve seen the race in its entirety maybe 8 times, my father and I no longer keep in contact but I feel if there were a cinema experience to mend the fractures between us, this is it. Thank you for your wisdom dad, thank you…

    Scorsese has officially overtaken Francis Ford Coppola as the king of the mob/mafia/gangster genre. With his newest, Scorsese tells a story of reputation, respect and family. Whether it be the family we choose or the one we’re born into, playing out like a pseudo documentary with constant voiceover similar to Goodfellas but with cut backs to the present day. Although the format of flashbacks to tell a story is wearing thinner and thinner for me, the way Scorsese cuts to…

    "I'll never forgive you for this"

    I've taken a very long walk after the credits rolled and even still i'm at a loss for words. It's testament to a brilliant director to turn an already all time great short film into a fully fleshed out and ultimately improved feature film. Jim Cummings deserves all the credit in the world for writing such a harrowing, heartfelt and natural dialogue all while putting in an Oscar worthy performance.

    They say a common cause of face acne is having sweaty hands on your face, well I’m ready for a breakout tomorrow because my hands have been glued to my face for 2hrs+

    This is the best horror since The Shining with Toni Collette giving the best horror performance of all time. The best film A24 have ever made. Not having this at 5/5 is a really, REALLY bad look.
