last week’s films…

Night of the Living Deb (2015), Kyle Rankin

Hey we can survive on this stuff.

Maybe for an hour, if we were rabbits.

Touchez Pas au Grisbi (Hands Off the Loot) (1954), Jacques Becker

Eddie the Eagle (2016), Dexter Fletcher

I almost ejected it, but after a day I hit play again to find out what happened, otherwise a very ordinary production with music that seems so trite that it’s a sore thumb. The story itself was great, and I’m glad I know it now. The best scene was with Christopher Walken. I would have liked to see more of Petra.

The Music Room (1958), Satyajit Ray movie of the week

A Room with a View (1985), James Ivory

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016), Edward Zwick

Rams (2015), Grimur Hakonarson

Iceland. Sheep farmers. Beautifully filmed slow burner with lots of visual storytelling – actions explaining relationships.



One thought on “last week’s films…

    Agree with you about a number of these, The Music Room on the plus side. But I absolutely agree about Eddie the Eagle. I rated it higher than you, but would have much preferred a straightforward narrative of the story. It had too much Hollywood formula. I think a documentary would have been far better.
