1917, amazing and the single shot format added so much to it allowing you to experience some of the quieter moments whilst also ramping up the tension. Film flew by for me

Lighthouse at the watershed in bristol last night

Very cinematic, Defoe (and farts) on form and rpatz surprisingly decent too

completely bonkers

A double bill with uncut gems will be something

I really liked High Life too, he's onto some good stuff these days. Actually looking forward to him as Batman

Soundtrack on Uncut Gems was definitely Marmite. Didn't rate the snide Jan Hammer score at all.

Uncut Gems was incredible. Each Safdie brothers film is better than the last.

Really liked the score for Uncut Gems actually. And just saw Parasite, very good. I wouldn't be surprised if it gets the original screenplay Oscar, would be deserved.

Uncut gems was ok, but for me there was too much going on, very hectic and constant shouting and arguments, felt like there was never a break in a scene, exhausting to watch!

I get where you’re coming from but that was their intention surely hence the impact of final scenes

Out of the nominees was a worthy winner for me, if Uncut gems had been nominated i'd have gone for that.

Uncut Gems was terrible. Don’t get the hype surrounding this at all. Was good to see sandler in a more serious role again but other than that I thought it was shit.

The Lighthouse was indeed batshit crazy. Liked it.

How anyone could anyone enjoy Uncut Gems is beyond me.

Agreed, not a fan of Uncut Gems.

I didn’t feel the score worked, even though I’m a fan of Daniel Lopatin’s other stuff including the score for Good Time.

Film was too long for what it was and was pretty happy with the final outcome of the film.

I do wonder if it was the academy's way of sidestepping the race and gender diversity issue. They've had a fair amount of fuck ups over the past few years with Moonlight etc.
