    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★

    Frenetic, wildly unique, and as overstuffed as its title suggests. Everything Everywhere All at Once tears through its runtime like a technicolour rollercoaster. I loved what it set out to do, and I'm divided on whether it got there, or whether its sheer torrential creativity makes its flaws forgivable. While its inversion of Gen Z nihilism - 'nothing matters' - is cute, the film overshoots several times in its attempt to achieve its 5-7 emotional climaxes. However, EEAO's failure is…

    Moon Knight

    ★★★½

    Moon Knight is the best of the MCU Disney+ shows, and by far the most intriguing. Severed from the exhausting tie-ins, cameos and references that are part and parcel of 2022 Marvel, Moon Knight had a chance to forge its own path.

There's real potential to create a compelling hero's journey - particularly the strong opening and Gawain's doubts about how to earn greatness - but the…

    ★★★★

    Currently recovering from a sudden and grotesque migraine and can confirm that this movie is VERY effective when watched in a semi-feverish state.

    The best way for me to judge a film like this is in comparison to another very much like it. The VVitch draws natural comparisons to Hereditary superficially (supernatural horror films distributed by A24 and directed by a debut creator) stylistically (from the shot composition to the soundtrack) and tonally (bleak, slow-burn character studies reliant on heavy…
