    The Levelling

    ★★★½

    This is a dour, miserable drama about the harshness and brutality of farming in Britain. Right up my street. It feels as though it may be heavily inspired by early Lynne Ramsey and Ken Loach.

    Clover is an animal medicine student called back to her father's farm after her brother tragically takes his own life. Throughout the film we begin to understand why the father is why he is, why the farm is why it is and why the brother…

    ★★★★½

    Park Can Wook is in a class of his own. One of the Directors that you just have to see whatever he puts out, because the chances are it's going to be at least "very good".

    The Handmaiden is beautiful, erotic, captivating, naughty, perverse, thrilling, tense, twisted and brilliant.

    For anybody who likes mindfuck cinema it's a great great film. For anyone who likes Park Chan Wook - it's bliss.
