    House of Gucci

    ★★★½

    A well done paint-by-numbers. Wildly entertaining for the most part thanks to the lead performances of Driver and Gaga. The film can't find it's tone. It's too scared to go full ham even though Leto, the funniest part of this, is at full ham. It's funny, but fizzles too quickly in the back half when it remembers that it's supposed to be a serious movie. Way too long.

    Second time Adam Driver goes down on his female co-star in 2021.

  • Benedetta

    Benedetta

    ★★★½

    Vapourous blasphemy with nothing particularly compelling to say. Interesting ideas about body and autonomy creep up here here there but the film doesn't lean into them enough for it to be interesting. Much less gay than I thought it was gonna be.

    Charlotte Rampling is destined to jump from religious order to religious order for all time.

    Doctor Who: Resolution

    ★★½

    This Holiday special just feels like your average Doctor Who episode in the worst way possible. Even the worst of the specials feel like their own unique story. They rely heavily on the two words 'holiday' and 'special'. Resolution is anything but those two things. It might as well be season 11, episode 11.

    Not to mention that the problems that broke season 11 are still very apparent here.

    ★★★★½

    VIFF 2021 #2.

    Strawberry Mansion is both totally unique yet richly draws from a variety of influences. One of those weird movies that gets the mind going. It's as inspiring as it is frightening. Nightmarish charm all around. Absolutely loved this film.
