Tom of Finland (2017)

Rating: 3.5/5

From once-secret art during post-war repression
To open appreciation of Tom’s artistic expression.
Well-acted, but too safe/clean.
Favourite/clever scene:
Pool party cops (subverting our assumed impression).

Baby Driver (2017)

Artistry in the choreography (soundtrack with scene).

Elgort: charismatic; battling demons re keeping ‘clean’.

Such questionable character motivations

Relating to some third act situations.

Jones stands out, with the best performance on the screen.

The Trip to Spain (2017)

As before: big laughs, majestic scenery, lots to eat.

New: added melancholy for Steve (kept discreet).

Highlight: the guys out-swaggering

Each other when Jagger-ing.

Only letdown: dubious end scene (an odd conceit).
