Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
What begins as a tender romance soon enough devolves into overwrought melodrama.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Aside from the first-rate cinematography and editing, it's is so disappointingly arch that we struggle to believe anything, even as it touches on important themes.
| Original Score: 2/5
The film's visual assets are clearer than its batty storytelling.
Tennessee Williams might struggle with the idea of inspiring this project.
Beautifully shot and mostly well executed. Lea and her cast are worth looking out for.
| Original Score: 3/5
Grief and a messy shared history hang in the air like a river mist that won't clear, and the two lead stars make it worthwhile.
I liked this modest film, its unusual setting, its new-folk music (by Troubadour Rose) and its conscious echoes of A Streetcar Named Desire.
The movie isn't perfect and arguably doesn't quite come together at the end, but it works as an intense and bizarre psychological drama, and the Kent landscape is gorgeously evoked.
Its simplicity is both effective and deceptive-a testament to the script's intelligence and to the actors' beguiling (if slightly histrionic) performances.
| Original Score: 4/5
