    Let the Right One In

    ★★★★★

    A coming of very, very old age tale. A fable maybe, or a legacy. Vampire lore stretches within its story of friendship and deep loneliness. The yin and yang of togetherness, bonding, distance, care, fear...

    ‘Låt den rätte komma in’ carries a vivid memory, as it landed around a horrendously difficult time in my life. A friend that I'd known since school had lost her battle with her own inner demons that had plagued her for many years. Nothing can…

    Bear with me as I take you on a little journey through cowboy country. Five years ago (almost to the day), Mrs Graham and I were planning our 25th anniversary trip to the US of A. A trip that would start in LA and take in some very special places including San Diego, San Francisco, Napa and Vegas.

    Now, her ladyship has always been partial to a great western movie and in fact, it's probably her very favourite genre. In…

    ★★★½

    Selecting 16-year-old Maddy as his next victim has this travelling serial killer seeing red, in a tightly packaged 21 minutes of coming of age tenderness.

  • Brain on Fire

    Brain on Fire

    ★★

    Two years before the intensely moving The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Chloë Grace Moretz was the lead in this sea of beige. While not a bad film, it has nothing particularly interesting to grab hold of... beige people in beige offices doing beige jobs before going home to their loveless beige relationships.

    Oh whatever, beige can be calming I guess. Brain on Fire however was an entirely predictable on-rails emotionalathon and, on the whole, pretty uninspiring despite its interesting neurological disease based theme. If they'd had, oh I dunno, a brain actually on fire that may have helped a little.

    ★★★★

    "So much potential wasted in a male."

    Josh Brolin and Timothée Chalamet getting sweaty in a knife-fight was a classical love scene only surpassed by every, single, second of Zendaya's all encompassing screen presence.

    In Dune, Denis Villeneuve has found a moment of clarity in a sea of mediocre releases. Its intelligent screenplay and devastatingly beautiful presentation carry a tale full of the future inside this incredibly detailed world.

    While cosmetically outstanding, the near-perfect casting transcends the film to a…
