    Poor Things

    London Film Festival (Film #40 - Feature #30) - Royal Festival Hall

    A movie literally made for children. Just like Tony McNamara's previous work, there is not a single joke here that does not consist of either: 1) an adult saying a swear word or a dirty word (wow isn't that funny); or 2) something being anachronistic or lacking era specificity. Those things aren't funny to begin with but wear thin quickly... but I guess for the children that this…

    Probably up there with my most confusing cinematic experiences ever, based purely on my utter bewilderment at how this movie is held in the esteem that it is. There is literally nothing to it - if it were any more lightweight it would float away.

    Mank is a fucking DISGRACE.

    On so many levels this is the worst film of 2020, and the worst film by quite a stretch. Morally, it's appalling. On a filmmaking level, it's incompetent. And on a personal level, it's just so fucking boring.


    Let's start with how this movie treats Orson Welles. Let me be clear, the movie could've done this and gotten away with it, IF IT WAS ANY FUCKING GOOD (which it isn't). Herman Mankiewicz did not…
