Re: List of submissions to the 92nd Academy Awards for Best International Feature Film

Dear Ex (Taiwan) 5/10 A rather pleasant diversion about a woman who discovers that her late husbands insurance policy is going to be paid out to his male lover. This sets off all kinds of anxiety and stress and ties itself up rather neat and tidy in the end. In other words its a rather formulaic com...

R.I.P. Daniel Johnston

I really only became aware of Daniel Johnston through a truely fascinating 2005 documentary by Jeff Feurerzeig called The Devil and Daniel Johnston. The doco is really worth tracking down and as someone with zero interest in modern music I found it engrossing stuff. https://www.theguardian.com/music...

Re: Downton Abbey -- the movie

I really enjoyed this and the two hours flew by in an instant. When I first saw the trailer for it at the cinema about a month ago my partner and I thought we should really watch the entires series first. I've had the series on Blu Ray on my 'to watch' pile for a number of years now so a few weeks a...

Re: Jojo Rabbit reviews

How many people have actually seen Taika Waititi's earlier films (i.e. his native New Zealand films not that superhero film he did)? Given this appears to be a rather personal work as he also wrote the screenplay, it should be noted that his earlier films are very much an acquired taste. Some simply...

Re: The Farewell reviews

I'll be really interested to see what the reaction to this film is going to be like as it rolls on internationally. It's underperforming at the box office in Australia & New Zealand in its opening weekend and is already off the 'no free list' and has been shunted off to smaller screens and less ...

Re: The Farewell reviews

Goodness I loathed this film. Talk about amateur hour. Sketchy broad characterisations is being generous, the most shockingly bad cinematography I've probably ever seen though this was no doubt an aesthetic choice by the director but I don't think it helped the film one bit. Its such a contrived set...

Re: The Goldfinch reviews

I'll see it despite the poor reviews and I've liked everything John Crowley has directed in the past. However, when I noticed a couple of weeks ago that this was getting a wide release that it appeared the distributor had something they felt was not going to do well critically. A case of take the mo...

Re: 2019 Venice Line-Up

Glad to see Ariane Ascaride score a best actress prize but the Venice line-up appeared to mostly pretty underwhelming.

Re: The Deuce

I haven't seen the show but have only read nothing but praise for it. It does sound interesting so I might buy the whole series when it comes out on Blu Ray and to a 'binge watch'. I recently spent 11 days watching the entire series of Downton Abbey in readiness of the feature film and must say it i...

Re: R.I.P Carol Lynley

She has always been a favourite of mine. I think partly because she was in The Poseidon Adventure which I saw at young age and have always maintained a soft spot for the cast.
