    ★★★★

    It’s probably pretty obvious and perhaps even a little reductive to say that this movie is actually about ending a cycle of violence, perpetuated and exaggerated by violent movies and pop culture, which influence a struggling and easily-manipulated teenager who’s being abused to seek to continue the cycle of violence by pursuing revenge on the perpetrator of the violence in the first place. It’s also a hilarious movie, with an incredible script that’s equal parts meta humour, pop culture jokes…

    A fantastic documentary. Lacy brings together Spielberg’s life story eloquently, and compellingly explains why he’s such an important filmmaker and why his work will leave such a monumental legacy. I believe it’s scored with some of the same John Williams music as is heard in his films, which evokes the same emotions as when watching the film (you know you’ve got great movie music when it can do that). Really well done, a really good documentary on a fascinating subject.

    Beautiful yet chilling, JACKIE is a sombre tale of the Kennedy assassination from the perspective of the First Lady. It showcases one of Natalie Portman's greatest film performances, and is beautifully shot. I thought in particular the lighting was stunning, and the montage of new and archive footage was also very stylish. The unsettling score also added a great deal to the film. Overall, a beautifully constructed film with a brilliant performance from Natalie Portman.

After watching this latest Marvel instalment, DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, I worry about the future of not only the MCU but, in a lot of ways, cinema itself. I know how that’s trite to say, but Scorsese did actually have a point when he said that Marvel movies are akin to roller coaster rides. You get…
