Teddy’s review published on Letterboxd:
Another that I feel will get even better with time.
Fassbender is of course the standout here, from the most subtle of glances to the bigger characters moments, he shines the entire way through. One of, if not, my favourite performances from him. He really is one of our best.
The score was another thing I wanted to highlight. Nothing particularly grandiose about it but when it comes in it HITS, it's used so effectively in the film.
Steve McQueen is a great director, who knew! His direction feels so sophisticated and to the point. I'm gonna compare him to Fincher because they both just present you with stories that you have to come away from with your own conclusions. No spoon feeding or hand holding. Kino.
