DAMSELS IN DISTRESS
Girl joins twee cult that are into preventing suicide, tap dancing and blue eyed boys. Then they chat a bit. Incredibly watchable.
A film mainly about everything other than christmas. Retains the ‘Happy’ though, for the most part. Good chubby baby.
Pixar are best when being emotive and a film about feelings gives them plenty to play with. A fun feel bad movie.
A funny, bleak and beautifully shot Russian satire based on the retelling of the book of Job. Very cold, very corrupt and very large amounts of vodka.
Intent of destroying any happiness Fury starts off brilliantly raw. Loses it’s way at the end when it becomes a sob story/look how many SS we can kill with our limited ammo.
A very grey and creepy Australian haunted house horror full with tension and scary child acting. Largely a film about grief.
MAPS TO THE STARS
A humorously weird attack on Hollywood that doesn’t really make sense but in a very watchable way.
BIRDMAN (ZURICH FILM FESTIVAL)
A faux single-shot black comedy full of hateful people and their irritating opinions. Plenty of laughs and drumming while Michael Tweaton loses his mind.
BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP
An intriguing thriller which seems intent on removing all tension as soon as anything builds. I’d quite like to go to sleep and forget it.
