Where to begin?
I went to see this movie yesterday with my son, not quite knowing what to expect other than it had scored 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.
I won’t mention the shenanigans at the front desk;
It blew me away.
Afterwards, my son told me that I say that about every film I watch at the Curzon.
I say, no, no. This was special.
It was beautiful. Frightening, painful, articulate.
It seemed to coincide with my recent concerns about left and right, the collapse into inanity that is sweeping over America and Britain, the love affair with extremism, Right-wing chaos; it is a blur.
What can I say?
The music, transportation back to the 70’s, humour, sadness, tension and shock. It make me feel small, safe and terrified.
I don’t really want to say more as I am sure it will sound like schlock.
Go see it.
If you don’t like, I don’t mind, for you will have seen it!
