Rye Lane 2023
Stunning. Utterly stunning.
THIS is what a meet cute romance should look like on film in 2023. So natural, fun, cheeky, flirtatious and yes, cute.
Such an impressive directorial debut. The use of South London is brimming with pride and belonging. And the two leads have the best chemistry that I've seen on screen for years. I'd snog them both. Even with the normally annoying fish eye lense.
Decision to Leave 2022
A modern masterpiece.
So stylish. Every frame is meticulously constructed with incredible amounts of care and skill. Park as a director can be added to the evolving line of Hitchcock, De Palma and Fincher.
Spectacular. And seemingly effortless too.
White House Plumbers 2023
Harrelson and Theroux are very watchable. But, even at just 5 hours, this runs out of steam halfway through and squanders the quality of the subject matter. It's a mad story which we already know quite well, and this doesn't colour in many blanks. I don't think it's even sure if it's trying to be funny or not.
Masculin Féminin 1966
Yet another of Godard's films about men trying to talk women into sleeping with them. It's all very intellectual of course, yet quite easy to go along with.
