  1. It was hit for me. Try and see it in a cinema if you can. The last 20 minutes is not going to work nearly as well on a telly.
  2. They didn't shoot the floor by where she was sitting because she was sitting there.
  3. Jesus. I have to say I don't miss Moffatt one bit.
  4. Underground, by the same director as Black Cat, White Cat, is also great. Come and See is possibly the greatest and most depressing depiction of WWII ever committed to film. The Cremator is a Slovak film about a man who allows his obsession with perfecting the cremation process to lead him down a very dark path. The editing is amazing. Any Aki Kaurismaki film, but my favourite is probably The Man Without a Past. Thelma by Joachim Trier. You're better off knowing as little as possible but it's broadly about an awkward girl who's led an isolated life striking out on her own for college and making some mistakes along the way. It's not a comedy. Hard to be a God is an almost impenetrable adaptation of a Strugatsky bros novel but worth it for the atmosphere alone. The Ascent is a very lyrical film about how bleak war is. Fairly hard to find in the UK though. Why Don't You Just Die is a berserk Russian chamber piece about a lad who agrees to kill his girlfriend's dad. Slapstick violence and hyper kinetic editing.

  7. I saw this at Celluloid Screams last month and really liked it. It's not perfect but it's pretty much exactly what I was expecting/hoping for from a Richard Stanley Lovecraft adaptation and the last half hour left me properly dazed. Definitely go see it on the big screen if you have any interest in it at all.
  8. Yeah, it's not a horror by any normal measure, other than that some of the people in it are really fucking horrible to everyone. It's kind of got the shape of a rape revenge thing but it's more about abuse of power and violence begetting violence and all that. It's very good, very brutal and I'm glad I've seen it but I don't think I'll need to see it again any time soon.
  9. It was on Shudder last I looked. I think they do a month's free trial.
  10. It's about a restless retired woman teaming up with her neighbour's maid to seek out a man who has a secret connection to the neighbour's past life as a farm owner in the foothills of Mount Tabu in Africa. It's no Team America but if you want a film you can lose yourself in, it's worth a look.
  11. I'll see your second seasons and no plans and raise you three seasons.
  12. Imagine being an animator working on this and then, like half way through, Spider-Verse comes out.
