    The Green Knight

    ★★★★★

    Utterly bonkers. No idea what was happening. Five stars.

    An earthy, tactile, messy, picaresque tale of futile quests, unearned legend, folklore and fantasy. The visuals are stunning, but the sound design is incredible. Every fractious crack, each rumbling word, all the squelches, were vividly realised over a superbly ethereal, disorienting soundtrack.

    Quite possibly the film of the year.

    ★★★★½

    It insisted itself on my consciousness after watching, slipping in and out of my thoughts as I dwelled on what I had seen and heard and experienced.

    I wasn't completely convinced if I loved it immediately after watching it, but it has a long, slow but incredible aftertaste which has only deepened my appreciation of it after finishing it. It teeters on the edge of pretentiousness, and intentional opaqueness - but I love films that are dizzyingly inventive, if not…

    This is a very Taika Waititi film. Anyone expect Ragnarok might be disappointed. Anyone expecting the spiritual continuation of Hunt for the Wilderpeople will be in their element.

    Yesterday

    ★★★

    If you're writing a love letter to The Beatles, you need more than love. But Yesterday's conceit is bizarre. I'm not convinced it really works, but it's delightfully told, with winsome actors and, inevitably, a superb soundtrack. It won't change the world: life goes on.
