Daniel Craig has been in just two feature film cinema releases, in a credited role, since 2012.
MRS BROWN is perhaps Dame Judi’s best film. Will another Queen Victoria project yield similar quality?
Did not need coda, already hugely impressed a few minutes earlier. A filmmaking team firing on all cylinders.
The first was surprisingly engaging. However, some London diversity would be nice in the new one.
MENASHE played at the Berlin and Sundance film festivals.
Syrupy melodrama. Feels like Deneuve and Frot spend the film just talking about men. Not as turgid some of Provost's projects.
Interminable. Inept dialogue, characterisation and storytelling. I, DANIEL BLAKE this ain't.
A long lost sibling. Groan.
Starring French acting royalty, Marion Cotillard.

Brains and soul are key; but adrenaline junkies do not fret, there is also much love for an experience that delivers a sucker-punch to the guts via stunningly delivered thrills.

Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
