    Ophelia

    ★★½

    Opens with some pretty awful narration, but it improves pretty steadily, and for the most part isn't the film that voiceover implies. On the whole it's reasonably entertaining, but I think it probably should've tried to be more revisionist - it's just scrawling in the margins of Hamlet, I think I'd have liked it more had it gone for a big swing.

    ★★★★

    The way Josette Simon names the Secretary of State for Education is my favourite line reading of the year.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    ★★★★

    Not seen this before, and found it basically quite charming and likeable. Miracle I didn’t watch it a decade ago, mind, that could’ve done some real damage.

    How to Build a Girl

    ½

    It's aggressively annoying from the start, but by the end it's a work of towering vanity and alarming narcissism - without even a hint of self-awareness. I am genuinely astonished at the depth of arrogance it must take to write a film this cloying about your own adolescence.

    Beanie Feldstein, please, fire your agent before you find yourself in a sequel about flinging shit at Owen Jones on twitter.
