beforeBEFORE 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.

4/10

TheKeeperTHE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES

A rudimentary Danish detective film which ticks all the boxes for a watchable TV series.  Occasionally chilling with some very loud noises.

5/10

throverTHE ROVER

A tense but unrewarding by-the-numbers post-apocalyptic buddy movie (The Brover).

8/10

LINCOLN

Ddl Oscar vehicle. Lots of zooming in on Lincolns face while he says inspirational things to a soundtrack of light trumpet music. Very good. 9/10

PsychoPSYCHO

Pretty good – but like the beatles, it’s only really well regarded because of the changes it caused. Good changes though. 10/10

HitchcockHITCHCOCK

Not very likeable character. But a likeable plot. 6/10

ZeroDarkThirtyZERO DARK THIRTY

Too Hollywood. Not enough grit. Changed my mind, it’s good. 8/10

DjangoDJANGO UNCHAINED
Not bad. Brilliant first hour let down by plodding conclusion for the remaining two. 7/10

Groundhog

GROUNDHOG DAY

Never seen this before. It’s very good. I could wake up and watch this every day.

10/10

Reservoir

RESERVOIR DOGS

Like watching a play. A really good one. 10/10
