If all goes to plan, in 10 years when I’m a director and an interviewer asks me what film most profoundly impacted my life, I will answer (from an entirely emotional, personal perspective): Love, Simon.
A sharp and terrifying social satire balanced to humorous yet tragic effects, I Am Not A Witch is a cracking (if sporadic) debut piece from Rungano Nyoni, enhanced by gorgeous and striking cinematography from David Gallego and a brilliant performance from Maggie Mulubwa. Definitely worth 93 minutes of your life.
Harmless, disposable entertainment. Watching it in a packed preview screening definitely helped, but the atmosphere was great throughout and the four leads have such fun which is passed on to the audience. It conforms to every expectation in the book and brings little new to the genre but it’s enjoyable in its own way.
A surprisingly layered and enthralling insight and approach to the story behind the story. Ross Lynch is fantastic as Dahmer and there’s a blistering intensity and nerve-shattering quality that the film manages to build and sustain for the duration of its runtime. It ends exactly where I wanted it to end and while it may not satisfy everyone with where it concludes, it feels appropriate for a story about the man himself rather than his actions.
Avengers: Infinity War juggles ten years’ worth of character, plot and stakes in a pretty exceptional, confident, dark, intense, surprisingly funny and Universe-quaking spectacle that brings all characters into the fold impressively well. The next year will be tough to sit through.
