    Martin Eden

    ★★★★★

    A fictional biopic commentary on promises and failures of the 20th century, that strides, confidently and with a kick in it’s step, straight into my favourites. A masterful, modern take on Italian classics, the odyssey of a young working man looking to transcend social disparity on the quest to accomplish his own status, and to capture the heart of the woman he loves, the well-to-do, well-educated Elena, the beacon to which he looks to romantically.

Technically admirable, but with such a precarious subject matter, I didn’t warm to the stylised touches, nor the capitalising on build-up. Of course school is awkward, teenage interaction is awkward, so I appreciate the angle, but I should’ve felt uncomfortable by the theme, not by the stilted acting or bundling eye-contact. Van Sant evidently has something to say, it just gets lost in a haze of stagy, not very tasteful boredom, aching to be noticed

    Red Notice

    Netflix: The Movie, starring; Celebrities and Location Green Screen. The Rock being muscles, Ryan Reynolds being sarcasm and Gal Gadot being legs. Red Flag would be appropriate. Destined to be forgotten, entombed in the bottomless Netflix pit, bygone in the endless scroll

    Rami Malek won an Oscar for this glorified Austin Powers impression while Mike Myers is sitting here, Oscarless. Riddle me that, flat-earthers
