DRUG WAR ★★★★½ An exciting mixture of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and MIAMI VICE and KEKEXILI: MOUNTAIN PATROL.
PHILOMENA ★★★★☆ Expert heart-string pulling, backed up by ire boiling under the surface. What a year Steve Coogan is having.
FREE BIRDS ★★½☆☆ Bonkers animation. Time travelling turkeys attempting to alter history. Not consistently funny enough.
Hirokazu Kore-eda back catalogue. AFTER LIFE. Initial reaction: Plenitude of ideas, not explored enough. Since watched, growing in esteem.
PARKS AND RECREATION season two ★★★★★ Joins COMMUNITY and ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, as one of the greats of modern comedy on television.
