Thunder Road

Relentless dark comedy that's like a car-crash that you can't look away from. Jim Cummings' face changes so much from second to second it's a joy to watch.

Sing Street

Like The Commitments done by the band from School of Rock without Jack Black. Great soundtrack and a pleasure to watch.

Brigsby Bear

It's weird, but it's just the right amount of sweet. Welled up with happy tears the whole 2nd half. It's dope as shit.

Free Solo

I'm so scared of heights I don't even like wearing socks, so it's as close as I'll ever get to climbing a mountain. Just an amazing doco, up there with Touching the Void and TT Closer to the Edge.

The Guilty

Danish movie that's proof that you can sometimes do so much more with so much less. Amazing the first time through, but not sure how it'll go on a rewatch, because it's all in the suspense.

Nine Days

Simply brilliant. Fans of slow-burning, philosophical movies like Ex Machina should definitely check it out. Works like the opposite of Inside Out. They shoulda called it Outside In!

The Banshees of Inisherin

I doubt I'll ever love it as much as In Bruges, but it's pretty feckin' good. It might have been the free glass of Guinness Palace Nova gave me, but it made me miss spending all my time at The Tonsley.
