    ★★★★½

    20th Anniversary Screening.

    First time seeing this on the big screen and wow, it holds up. Infinitely creative and the consequences of its filmmaking are so clear.

    ★★★★★

    Watched to celebrate Gone Girl day. 

    Gillian Flynn’s script is an absolute masterwork. To condense that novel’s intricacies in the way that she did? Incredible.

    Loved this. Really big fan of how it's an actual musical rather than a straight-laced biopic.

    It's maybe a bit over-directed, but Taron Egerton is phenomenal. I love his performance and hope it gets some awards love.

    There is a scene where Elton is punched and all I could think was "I want to be hit by Richard Madden, silly haircut and all". That sums it up really.

    Holy. Shit. 

    I loved nearly every second of this. Every member of the cast is firing on all cylinders, the script is hilarious and it’s so well directed. It helps that it loves its mains and their choices as well. 

    Olivia Wilde makes choices that are surprising but don’t distract. The pool scene is gorgeous and the doll scene is freakish but incredibly funny. 

    The cast are superb - I can’t pick a favourite. Beanie Feldstein continues to work on…
