    A rewatch every couple of years is needed. Probably my favourite Italian film of all time. It's not perfect from a technical standpoint, but it's so perfect in all the messages it tries to get across that I don't care. It spoke to my newly formed political conscience when I was 16. It's not just a story about a working class family and about politics in Italy in the '60s and '70s, it is also ultimately a film that asks…

    There is so much I want to say about this little indie film that I don't even know where to start. It was one of the most raw and beautiful cinematic experiences of my life. I started being moved by it in the first two minutes, and I started sobbing halfway through and never really stopped.

    This film delicately deals with so many important issues - the flaws of the prison system, which doesn't give enough resources to ex-convicts to…

    Expected to enjoy this more. I had a good time with it, but I didn't find it better than the Kevin Costner version like everyone says. A good '90s revival Western overall, but not one of my favourites.

    Couldn't get into this. Can't even put my finger properly on the why. Too bleak? Not a great deal of interest in the story? Not sure. It's an alright film. It just didn't capture my interest at any point. Oh well.

    The main emotion (and probably the only one as well) this film made me feel is pure disgust. For a film about misogyny, it is ridiculously misogynistic itself. I get that this is Renato's story and not Malèna's, but she still feels like a bidimensional character, like a walking pair of breasts, a beautiful shell empty on the inside. The film appears to me to want to be a critique of the male gaze, but it very clearly adopts the…

    I knew it was going to be great from the first moment Taron Egerton appeared on screen and curved his upper lip in the classic Elton John manner. He didn't just act the part, he transformed into Elton John in a way that I didn't think was possible for anyone. I felt so much joy while watching this. I know it's not a perfect film and it has many inaccuracies, but I don't really care. Personally I think biopics are…
