Super secret preview screening. Very slight movie dealing with big subjects. But, charming enough. Mainly down to the central relationship. Which is the least you can expect for a buddy movie

Nowhere near as good as the first. Nowhere near as bad as feared

Beautifully made and acted. But, kinda lacking in thrills for a thriller. Well patchy. When it’d good it’s great. But… [fin]

Daniel Blake directed by Yasujirô Ozu. Beautiful portrait of ‘family’ in Tokyo’s underclass [fin]

Assassination Nation

I enjoyed this…but: It has the feel of a movie about teenage girls written by a middle-aged man. Yet, without sinking to levels of exploitation (as in the genre). And, I think it loses something because of that [fin]

Quiet, intense. (Edward) Hopperesque. Impressive directorial debut from Paul Dano. Dunno how they managed to find a kid looked so much like him. [fin]

Any goodwill that Mike Leigh might have earned from me for Mr Turner is spent. This is an appalling piece of doggerel [fin]
