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).
An intimate yet monumental coming-of-age film about a boy growing up and his life experiences. Took about as long to make as this drawing did, and it’s just as excellent as it too.
UNDER THE SKIN
A beautiful but very cold film about self-awakening, the cold and something. A couple of excellent unnerving scenes and a very uncomfortable soundtrack.
COLD IN JULY
An 80s inspired thriller with enough twists and characters to keep things moving. Although it feels a little like cycling a hopper with a flat tyre. I’ve never been on a hopper.
EDGE OF TOMORROW
Groundhog Day goes sci-fi, keeps a little of the humour, adds a little bit of violence, kills off Cruise a lot. Quite good fun.
Tom Hardy in a car talking about concrete and “doing the right thing”. For some reason it’s brilliant.
GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL A quintessentially Wes Anderson film full of colour, humour and people who would use the word quintessentially in every-day conversation.
Three chapters about body obsession and Hungarian warfare. Visually striking and gross.
THE QUIET ONES
Attempts to be a homage to classic horror films. Pays homage to all the crap ones.
