    So lightweight it makes 90s Kate Moss look fat.
    Trite as hell but the art is amazing.

    -1000 points for that song over the credits




    (Crowe is a good director - he always catches your attention & keeps your eye on screen, but the screenplay of this - another Crowe special - is SO cliched, so trite. Get someone else to write and direct that.

    Big ups for promoting Australian art & the Archibald Prize for Portrait Photography.)

    As a journalist, i'm appalled at how openly sexist this newsroom is. I also completely believe it was that bad.

    Advice for women in journalism circa 1980s Scotland:

    * Never get drunk in heels
    * Never fart in bed
    * Never try to be funnier than the men

    Bonus: * Never go to Blackpool (but that's really a general rule for life)

    Fast paced, slick and with a killer soundtrack.
    80's kids will love this!

    From the Halloween high school dance decorations to the not so subtle John Carpenter nods; the 70's political thriller pastiche to the quintessential diner locale in middle America - this is an expert mix of genres. Director Adam Wingard & Writer Simon Barrett just keep getting better with every film.

    Dan Stevens has left Downton Abbey well & truly behind; and Maika Monroe is fantastic - every bit as good as she is in It Follows.
