    Fight Club

    ★★★★

    Fincher’s Fight Club is deeply disturbing and memorable, I find myself reciting the dialogue as its so quotable.

    We meet the insomniac narrator stuck in a corporate job, he sees no possible way to change his boring life, so instead, he creates the new and exciting Tyler Derdan, a better looking, more driven and nihilistic version of himself. However, the narrator is unaware of his subconscious creation and therefore so are we.

    To escape the bleakness of his current reality…

    No Country for Old Men

    ★★★½

    Carefully meticulous the Coen brothers excel at delivering a tense thriller. 

    The absence of a score allows the footsteps and gunshots to be a focus for the audience, creating an ongoing tension throughout the two hour screen time. The expansive rural setting further plays on our innate fears. Together keeping the audience alert.

    Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

    ★★★½

    I surprisingly liked this movie, at first I thought that it would romanticise and glamourise Ted Bundy's horrific crimes, but I was wrong.

    The structure of the film was well crafted and the story was clearly constructed. It was incredibly interesting to learn about Ted Bundy's crimes in the perspective of his manipulated girlfriend Liz, who Lily Collins plays magnificently in an emotional performance. Good device of dramatic irony, as the audience presumably are aware of Ted's crimes but are…
