My Policeman

My Policeman

So dull, so unmoving, and so lacking in chemistry among its leads, this film absolutely has no reason to exist in the contemporary context. Well, it could have done one important thing in the end—that is, acknowledge bisexuality—but my guess is it’s so stuck with the source material's context that it brought alongside it ‘50s attitudes about queer identity and sex.

And Hollywood, stop making Harry Styles happen! Or at least stop giving him roles like this. The guy is no natural leading man, and at this point we might as well say that everything he touches turns into junk—or at least those films where he has any dialogue (‘Dunkirk’ was a pretty awesome movie to debut in).
