    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "Anya Taylor-Joy as young Diana Rigg" and "Sam Claflin as young Terence Stamp" are such great concepts, it's a pity they're wasted on what's essentially a feature-length perfume ad for people who think "owning vinyl" is a personality.

    The unrealistically supportive black love interest showing up to give an "I know what it's like to be the odd one out" speech ... jail for Edgar Wright.

  • Me and Orson Welles

    Me and Orson Welles

    ★★★

    Watching this the same week I did a Topsy-Turvy rewatch was a fatal error. Zefron is a doll and charming as hell, but the coming-of-age shit just feels like it's getting in the way of a movie about The Theatre. I could have watched an entire 90 minute recreation of the production, to be honest. What we get is terrific. Also: was Joseph Cotten really that much of a hound dog?

    I would love to see Zac and Linklater team up again on something that's a bit zanier and more contemporary.
