    Wow that was fun. 

    There’s a growing and shrinking horror to the finale that I relish. The villain is massive and horrific and also rather small and sad. 

    Jessie Buckley navigates it all fantastically and Alex Garland once again proves himself a talented and unique director. 


    A lot of this really worked for me and that ending is everything I love in horror. mother!, Suspiria, Men, it’s so fun seeing movies that just *go for it*. Bring it on.

  • Drive My Car

    ★★★★½

    Haunting and beautiful. How much can we understand each other, even those we know best, without letting go of our own security and giving in to our innate vulnerability?

  • CODA

    CODA

    ★★★★½

    A stunner of a movie. A touching story about what it is to need someone through a unique lens. The performances are phenomenal and deep and emotional.

    I hope this little film goes all the way. It deserves all the love and praise it’s getting.
