Destroyer-movie-bannerI’ve compressed all the reviews into these compendiums, except for a few exceptional titles:

Burning

This Korean crime drama takes too long to get moving, with a sad sack of a protagonist–a writer, of course. It does bring a memorable ending though.

Mary Queen of Scots

Like many, I’m absolutely entranced by Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie as well. I meant to review this in full, but nobody reads reviews anymore. I wasn’t sure how closely they stuck to the real history, as the writer even admitted to fabricating a key scene. Is history improved through embellishment?

Ask Me Anything

This oddball story twists everything at the end. That’s the best thing I can say about it.

Humans S3

This film will prompt about four exclamations of “What the fuck?”This is a deviant work, and one that I’m still trying to process. It’s a small Dutch indie, with a bourgeois veneer. But it’s also a twisted tale that seems to merge class conflict with some kind of unexplained demonology. A harsh dichotomy separates the rich family from the servant class invaders who infiltrate and take control of their minds.

The film seems to point to a revolutionary mindset, but the story comes at it from left field. Also there are children involved, completely vulnerable. The parents and the children are divided.
