    Some points:

    1) at a screening, Ridley Scott told the audience before the film that they’re allowed to laugh. So there are comedic moments. 

    2) this comes across as a British director poking fun at a French General / Emperor. Napoleon was deemed a great strategist and leader; see him nervous, falling over himself, fucking, and throwing insults like a toddler throws a tantrum (the boats line was funny).

    3) I like this analysis of unlikeable characters and why it…

  • The Climb

    The Climb


    I quite liked it. The sections were made up of single-shot takes that were shot really well. The comedy is underrated, but that meant the laugh-out-loud moments were earned. I thought it had a non-linear story - unless I got confused by the funeral.

    The characters were fun. Mike, as a guy who does what he can for his best friend, but f*c%s up at every point.

    I think the opening single-shot was engaging. Was he telling the truth or just enticing his friend?

    I think you'd like it if you like the Duplass brothers' films.

    Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio


    Guillermo del Toro does a children’s tale in a fascist world, again.

    Del Toro is the master of horror and monsters and world-building. This is no exception. His auteurial style is all over it.

    Well done to all involved.

    In from the Side


    Now I know that I have rose-tinted glasses, because I know Matt and I know Andrew, and I'm so PROUD of what they've accomplished.

    Regardless of that, this is AN EXCELLENT FILM

    I LOVED it.

    I put it in the same breaths as Weekend by Andrew Haigh and Once by John Carney.

    The cinematography is beautiful. The rugby sequences are very good.
    The cast were (almost entirely) fantastic performers. The script developed the goals of the supporting characters.

    I don't…
