Just watched Boiling Point. Would definitely have been in my top 3. 


One shot, one take about trials and tribulations working in a kitchen. It's really riveting and just amazing. 


Said it a million times but Stephen Graham is one of the best actors working today. Guy is incredible in everything.

that’s not been on prime yet, it’s still in the premiere section bit.


It was there on the 30th. By mistake, I assume, but it was there. I even started to play it to check.

Dinner in America is the best film of the year, and its criminally overlooked. Just wonderful.

Loved this, had avoided that kind of quirky american indie film since the regrettable shit I watched in the 2000s but this was lovely!
