  1. My 2016 film highlights

    My annual film highlights post, in which I highlight 20 films from all I saw during the previous year. Not all are without their flaws, but I'm very fond of all of them, flaws and all.

  2. Review of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom

    Wes Anderson's films aren't for everyone; some find them cold and alienatingly whimsical. If you don't get on with his style, watching a film of his must feel a little bemusing; if you can't empathise, you'd be left wondering what the point of any of it was. Myself, I've always been a fan, but watching Moonrise Kingdom made me feel how it must be to watch any of his other films without getting it. All the key elements were there -- hipster soundtrack, fairytale settings, lovely typefaces, Bill Murray -- but the whole thing left me cold.
