    The Zone of Interest

    ★★

    Too slow and dull, and apart from a few references and sounds to what was going on as well as a more impactful scene at the end, you barely get a view of the atrocities that were happening. I didn’t find it deeply upsetting or disturbing unfortunately like countless accounts here.
    Give me The Schindler’s List, La Vita è Bella or many other powerful films made on the Holocaust any time of the day! (Not every day though, as it would destroy me!)

    Even more touched the second time. Still haven’t cried but I can feel my heart thawing at every viewing. We’re getting there.

    What a treat to be sent a press link to watch before everyone because I am part of an erotic thriller podcast! Saw it twice (once pausing all the time to take notes - I wrote 12 pages of notes, dear reader! - and another without interruption) and this was very enjoyable, despite a few flaws. For my whole opinion, you need to listen to our next podcast episode which won’t be up before w/c 11th April unfortunately. In any case, do watch it! I’d be curious to know what you thought!

    Even if it’s not ground-breaking, it’s managed to make me laugh out loud and daydream about beautiful people in stunning settings for a couple of hours. I really needed this after finding out that my parents put my dog down yesterday. 😔
    So I will always be grateful to that film for clearing my mind and putting a smile back on my face on that evening.
