    A Perfect World

    ★★

    Kevin Costner’s underrated performance as an escaped convict with daddy issues is really the only highlight in Eastwood’s post Oscar chaser, its script undercooked, the rest of the cast underwhelming and an erratic tone that is far from perfect in my world.

    Unforgiven

    ★★★

    Eastwood’s Oscar darling appears to be an obit for outlaw mythos, serving as his own Western swan song. Ultimately, however, that notion is scratched, undercutting the point. Often pretty to look at, a requirement of the genre, it can’t wrangle enough intrigue.‬

    Palm Springs

    ★★★★

    Yet another descendant of GROUNDHOG DAY is elevated by quality performances from Samburg and Milioti, stuck in a predictable time loop and mostly having fun with it. A relatively grounded rom-com considering it was produced by The Lonely Island guys.‬

    Who's That Knocking at My Door

    ★★★½

    Martin Scorsese’s debut is sewn together from varying ideas and shoots over a number of years and despite this still shows a level of sophistication, its black and white frame taking cues from his contemporary art house filmmakers.‬
