    HARRY BROWN (Netflix) – This is a pretty good Michael Caine film all round. Harry Brown has lost everything, and is left alone in a horrible council flat surrounded by thugs and criminals.

    Two films today while waiting for election results. One has caused me to declare all cast and crew involved as enemies that I must destroy, and the other one was really good. We’ll start with the good, progress to the bad. No spoilers in the good one, but I’m going to give it all away […]

    HAPPY ENDINGS (Netflix) – At least one or two of the story lines at play here fail to interest me; much of the entire narrative of Nicky’s documentary film project is there only to tie other stories together, and it takes up way too much screen time.
