Brilliant, moving direction from Heller (so much to be admiring)
Lloyd gets more than he expected from his inquiring.
It’s a beautiful heart-tug,
Feels like a warm hug
Spending time with Hanks' gentle Rogers (Mr Inspiring).
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.
