    The Witch

    ★★★★

    Feels incredibly authentic, mostly as a result of the costumes and performances (the stand out being Black Phillip, who is just as unnerving as he is on the poster).

    Doesn't rely on jump scares for the most part, instead creates a creepy atmosphere using music, sound and images. The music is so effective that even just a shot of a man chopping wood is made eerie.

    But in spite of all this the cinematography was the probably my favourite thing…

    ★★★★

    Pretty great. More of an experience than a narrative. Essentially nothing happens, but that's okay. Good use of music and the actors (Paul Dano & Michelle Williams particularly) do well with what little they are given.

    Made for an interesting double bill with Steve Jobs, this film's leisurely pace in stark contrast with the breakneck speed of Jobs.
