    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★½

    More interested in mythologising the male ego than challenging it, but who cares because CARZ GO FAST. Like Mollie does, we’re supposed to pull up a seat and marvel at this big dick energy and think it’s even adorable. 

    I estimate that around 30 minutes could’ve been shaved off if it didn’t cut to a change of gear every five seconds. And that stupid second in command dude should’ve been called ‘Mr. Obstacle Man’ in the credits because that was…

    Started my MIFF with a bang. 

    Beautiful and slow, this builds to a very emotional epilogue which completely floored me. 

    There are a few scenes which are note-perfect. One involves a fish tank.

Really impeccable stuff. Uniformly excellent performances, especially Guida.
