Aftersun ★★★★★

Maybe it took watching this in a busy communal space but this worked on an even greater level than any of my previous watches. I don't think I'd quite clocked how funny some of the observations are until I heard a room chuckle with laughter too. Equally, I don't think the devastating moments have even felt quite so poignant.

This is a masterpiece. Everything about it feels so intentional and sublimely chosen. Every glance between actors, every word spoken is chosen so smartly. And, it goes without saying, the Under Pressure scene is about as impactful as a musical moment gets.
