All the accolades will make you think there must be something about Belfast. I suggest you look elsewhere.
Movie reviews for the passionate of film
Month: January 2022
The Disciple (2021) – Movie Review
It was hard for me to engage with the specific in The Disciple, but the general is filled with universal emotions.
The Tragedy of Macbeth (2022) – Movie Review
The Tragedy of Macbeth is so much my jam that if I didn’t know better I’d think it was made just for me. This is an endorsement as much as it is a warning, because it could very well be that everything that I like about this project is what puts you off.
The Man with the Answers (2021) – Movie Review
A road movie that succeeds in building a compelling protagonist but falls short with his foil.
Moffie (2021) – Movie Review
A harrowing denunciation of homophobia and violence in the army, too impersonal to fully land.
Being the Ricardos (2021) – Movie Review
An interesting looks at the makings of classic TV comedy, marred by miscasts and an oddly dour mood.
