Green Book is a relaxed, heartwarming story to experience during the chill this time of year brings. Any slight flaws are all but forgotten as it's earnest performances and well-handled story win you over.
Shoplifters recently won the Palme d'Or at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival and I'm glad to say it lives up to the praise. It's a smart, expertly judged film with the potential to make you both laugh and cry thanks to its naturalistic performances and the undiluted honesty of its story.
Prospect is an intelligent slow burn story of survival and redemption. It mixes familiar aspects of Westerns and Science Fiction to create a world where you can imagine hundreds of stories taking place. Its mythology is enticing, but thankfully the film itself is compact and entertaining.
