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.
THE 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.
A tense but unrewarding by-the-numbers post-apocalyptic buddy movie (The Brover).
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
Not very likeable character. But a likeable plot. 6/10
Not bad. Brilliant first hour let down by plodding conclusion for the remaining two. 7/10
Tidal waves of tears and hugging. 3/10
Lots of joyless terrible singing vs a couple of beautiful moments. 6/10
THE HOBBIT – AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
Short people moving about. Set pieces. Further movement.
Edit: Even more movement in HFR
