Stayed with me for days. The single take thing gives it a really amazing sense of time. Exhausting but incredible.

I read a lot of criticisms of the 'slow build up' but to me it makes it so realistic. I've been that group of lads trying to chat up some foreign girl, the broken English discussions. Obviously I don't get roped in to robberies Laughing out loud but it felt like I've lived the first half of the film and how the single shot ramps up the tension. When they were clubbing after the job I was mentally urging them to get the fuck out and hide up somewhere. Saw it at Summer Screen as well so it was outside/raining when I was watching which added to it

Yes I did. Saw the climate change doc as well so had to drag my ass to London two consecutive nights but it was worth it. I'm surprised they let you take your own booze and food in. Jaws and Deliverance double-header would of been alright as well

Zygote (2017)

Directed by Blomkamp, 20 minute short.

Loved every second.

Deadspace x Doom x The Thing - great if you like sci-fi horror

Basquiat. Solid Indie film with an amazing cast (Jeffrey Wright, Benicio Del Toro, Dennis Hopper, Gary Oldman, Christopher Walken, Willem Dafoe, Parker Posey & even David Bowie)
Not nearly as dark as the reality but a good watch.

Bit late but just saw Nocturnal Animals. Fantastic film. Great storytelling and beautifully shot as you'd expect from Tom Ford.

Ghost in the shell. It was terrible as all predicted. Not Scarjo's finest moment.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.0. One was ok - the retro music, crappy 80s references like the hoff not good.
