  • The Stanford Prison Experiment

    The Stanford Prison Experiment

    ★★★

    Caught this late night on telly, was a bit drunk so kept expecting it to go really harsh. Once I realised it was based on real events and settled into it’s groove the performances took over. Good stuff that holds a mirror up to the boxes we put each other and allow ourselves to be put into. I really need to leave my job!

  • Ghost in the Shell

    Ghost in the Shell

    ★★★

    I was ready to be disappointed, but it sort of won me over - mainly due to evoking memories of the original anime. Had I gone in blind I'm not sure what I would have made of it, but as a good looking live action accompaniment it does a decent job. That, however, does not mean I give my concent to a live action Akira...

  • Get Out

    Get Out

    ★★★★

    Jesus that was terrifying - worse than that tho, most of the people I know are white!

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Spider-Man: Homecoming

    ★★★★

    Finally the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a superhero that saves people and better still shuns the MCU team-up hype to continue to do that. I'm very excited to see a more grounded sequel with this version of the character - either that or an adventure with Deadpool. Whatever happens from here Spider-Man is back and I'm happier than I thought I would be about that.

  • Dunkirk

    Dunkirk

    ★★★★½

    Superb visual storytelling, and a reminder that nothing will stop us Brits from queuing!

  • David Lynch: The Art Life

    David Lynch: The Art Life

    ★★★★

    I've been, like many, on a real Twin Peaks high recently and the timing of this documentary is perfect. Here you get Lynch talking about his life, cut together over a period of three years accompanied by footage of him in his studio working on various art components. His music plays as artwork flashes, flickers and desolves, colouring his anecdotes. He takes you up to the creation of Eraserhead, a point at which the film suggests he finally found himself…

  • Logan

    Logan

    ★★★★

    I'd heard it was brutal but fuuuuuu!!!1

  • Bridget Jones's Baby

    Bridget Jones's Baby

    Not the target audience due to my sorrow at what Glastonbury has become, my disinterest in Ed Sheeran, a desire for comedy to have funny jokes in and never a fan of main cast being replaced in sequels by other actors - I wonder what Rene Zellweger did to get thrown off this project.

  • Baby Driver

    Baby Driver

    ★★★

    Was ok, hype is a motherfucker tho.

  • Sandy Wexler

    Sandy Wexler

    Just noticed this was the 1,000 film I've logged on Letterboxd - how utterly depressing.

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    ★★½

    When this was being Moana at the beginning it was kind of rad, but when it did Blackadder Goes Forth it started to lose me and the final boss battle at the end was just ridiculous. Chris Pine did the right thing.

  • Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

    ★★★★

    Puts the dark (and it is very dark indeed) side of the TV show right in your face with none of the warmth and charm that made me fall in love with Twin Peaks. Tough, at times brilliantly strange and troubling accompaniment to revolutionary television that was way ahead of its time. Time now to jump 25 years on find out what Coop/s has been up to!
