2/5 28% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) There's a thin line between visionary and hodgepodge, and it's a line that King Arthur crosses and re-crosses with an abandon that rivals Hunnam's accent sliding from Cockney to Californian and back again.‐ Total Film

5/5 100% Angst Essen Seele auf (Ali: Fear Eats the Soul) (1974) The prolific auteur was a huge admirer of Douglas Sirk, and there are echoes here of All That Heaven Allows, but the intensity is all Fassbinder.‐ Total Film
