    Quite a fascinating film, really, based on a classic in my country. I haven't read the novel, but it feels like a really high level of costume drama for us, I've got to say. It's a bit long, admittedly, but there's quite a bit to think about here, and the more I think about how the ending ties things up, the more I appreciate what it's trying to say. At least what I think it's saying.

    Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten

    ★★★★½

    This was a great watch. It's got such a fantastic mix of all kinds of things, archival footage, new interviews (shot in a really interesting way that makes a lot of sense once the film is over), footage from animated flicks, live-action flicks, drawings, it's all there and that keeps it engaging throughout. Not like Strummer would need anything else to keep it engaging, that man is fascinating.

    Pure fucking brilliance. Everything fucking works. Fucking humour, fucking emotions, fucking Ralph fucking Fiennes is the fucking best fucking ever.

    "You're an inanimate fuckin' object!"

    ★★★★★

    How this is not considered one of the finest action movies of the decade is beyond me. It is brutal, hard-hitting, exhilarating and contains a world so fully realized that I have to smile. The costumes, the mayan decorations, the jungle, the temples, everything is perfect. Equally colorful and real, the film juggles emotions and violent action wonderfully. It's a powerful movie that never lets up or looks back. One of my all-time favorites. I wish people could look beyond…
