It all felt so fresh. From start to finish, my heart soared.
Ronan’s brilliant performance left me floored.
This classic’s revisit
Is truly exquisite.
Captivating direction from Gerwig, and beautifully scored.
Strong performance from Deneuve as a film star long admired.
Fraught relationship with daughter (re: the past, and what transpired).
The locale and design are quite divine,
But all the parts don’t align -
As there's one letdown: a screenplay that’s uninspired.
Price Hal’s the reluctant inheritor of dad’s grand dominion.
There’s enemies everywhere, and advisors with many an opinion.
As a new King conflicted and pivoting
Chalamet’s work here is riveting.
Stunning cinematography (and costume design: be it ruler or minion).
A searing, uncomfortable, potent reflection on Australia and race:
So much shocking systemic, venomous behaviour (a disgrace) …
That will leave you reeling.
Then a hopeful / urgent call for healing
And reconciliation: a challenge this country must embrace.
Pioneering subway art photography in 70s New York City,
Martha’s insightful pics highlighted graffiti: gorgeously gritty.
Fifty skilled years at the lens
(A world originally only mens’).
A compelling subject, Martha’s wonderfully (dryly) witty.
Goodes: a hero deserving of respect, but copped racists queuing
Up to throw racial slurs and engage in vile booing.
Well beyond just the game,
This scourge is a national shame …
And this excellent film is absolutely compulsive viewing.
Ex-director Salvador has maladies by the score,
Visits Alberto, his lead from 32 years before.
Boyhood memories float by …
A cave with a gateway to the sky.
Stunning performance from Banderas: sensitive to the core.
Hutchence: the sexy, lanky frontman with charisma to burn.
So much new information here for us to learn
In this doco (with so much heart)
About the iconic man and his art …
And the tragedy that in this world he had a short turn.
Film student Julie: trying to prove her directorial vision will fit.
There’s insufferable Anthony: a wanker, user and ultimate git.
The pacing: perfection.
Swinton Byrne shines. And every moment is exquisitely lit.
