    ★★★★½

    Honestly one of the most relatable depictions of mental illness I've seen in a movie. There's so much in here that really expresses how I experience depression and anxiety.

    The sense of detachment, then those bursts where you just don't want to, can't, be alone. (When she goes to that diner with her neighbour). How you are followed by fear (here taking the form of the undead man). Those periods where you feel you're not part of the world and/or…

    Flying to Melbourne to see this at MIFF on my birthday was the best idea I’ve had at least all year. What better gift could I give myself than the sight of Armie Hammer in billowy shirts and short shorts, cycling around the Italian countryside? Except, perhaps, Armie Hammer dancing to Psychedelic Furs – I never knew that was something I needed to see, but, oh, how I needed to!

    In all seriousness (well, I am serious about Armie in…

    ★★★½

    Frothy, delightful fun! Does many things I love (most notably, breaking the fourth wall—will I ever tire of it?) and very few I don't.

    Cast is quite good overall: Sam Claflin plays awful men as well as he wears a moustache (spoiler: very well) and Henry Cavill is...an interesting choice for Sherlock Holmes, but I love him and his expressive eyebrows. I think I liked his Holmes! Millie Bobby Brown is mostly good, and I think she's going to get…

    ★★★½

    This movie is pretty silly and the timeline between the prologue and the present makes no sense, but it's also very sweet and it's fun and Lewis Smith is really cute and charming (and really good). He reminded me of someone, but I'm not sure who. Also this movie somehow made me cry. A lot.

    Had to listen to One Mint Julep by The Clovers as soon as I got home. Made me very happy to hear it featured!

    I love when movies leave you feeling a little dazed - a little like you've stepped into another world when you leave the cinema - and this definitely did that for me. Made me look at everything differently, even just for a few hours.

    It is achingly beautiful (visually & otherwise); exquisitely shot (on 16mm) it is…
