The Father

The Father ★★★★½

The camerawork is what stood out to me the most. It’s so careful like an egg, and just so gentle. Like if any sudden movement would break the scene entirely. Obviously Hopkins is probably at his best that I’ve seen? Then again I haven’t seen much of his movies and only watched Silence of The Lambs like once and that was a long time ago. Either way his performance is quite phenomenal and even those of Olivia Colman and Imogen Poots. 

Side Note: I recently made a Discord server for mainly Letterboxd mutuals and such to interact. Obviously It isn’t much now, but I’ll see over time on what I can do with it later. I just find it difficult to communicate with others who use this app and have such great and unique takes and views on the films they watch and I love seeing and reading those reviews. So if you are interested the link is HERE and feel free to send it around if you’d like. I would appreciate getting to talk to many of you and meeting you in a somewhat more proper setting lol.
