    The Girl in the Spider's Web

    ★★½

    There’s a decent thriller in here with some good action set pieces and a great performance from Foy but it’s a bit of a mess and the supporting characters aren’t all that compelling. The series also has a fetishistic attitude to the violence perpetrated on Lisander which I find unnecessary.

  • If Beale Street Could Talk

    If Beale Street Could Talk

    ★★★★

    Though I didn’t feel as emotionally connected to this as I did to Moonlight this is still an excellent film. Jenkins and cinematographer Laxton frame their characters in a way that few film makers can, the performances are wonderful and Britell’s score and the soundtrack are exquisite.

    Great fun, like a two hour episode of Stranger Things.
