    The Lost Daughter

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I don't know if this is intentionally or unintentionally hilarious. But scenes of rockstar comparative literature scholars flirting via keynote speeches sure makes me giggle. I would have loved it if as the husband was down on his knees begging what more do I need to do Jessie had said "Quote Yates... in Italian!"

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This was fine with a crowd. But there was nothing in this that would make me want to go back. There were also two plot points I took issue with. The first was a super obvious setup to do with not closing something which at the time I thought, I know what you are going to do here but in real life 2022 this would not be a problem. The second is the final reveal - I probably need to confirm but I'm not sure what we see is consistent with the weather conditions at the time.

    Gran sale! Gran sale! Gran sale!
    Megalo, megalo, megalo!
    Comprate da Franco Cozzo.
    In Brunswick, and Footisgrai.

    Reasonably breezy doco on Franco Cozzo. Many interesting directions this could have explored, but we didn't deep dive too far. Loved all the old TV footage, particularly the appearance on the Don Lane show.

    ★★★★½

    So much love shown in the set design and miniature work. The practical effects are great with so much goop being spat out. I particularly like the captain only room where there are so many lights flicking on and off for no apparent reason. One thing I couldn't work out is when they come out of deep sleep, why are there only six chambers?
