Luca Guadagnino was assigned: love triangle tennis. So he directed from the perspective of the ball, sometimes literally.

The pacing and pay-off in this frantic take on love and sport worked for me. Though its racing score kicked in one too many times. Its climatic match indulged in the teasing too long. And I have a feeling that Zendaya's character was underserved.

Avatar really did rip off Dune, and don't get me started on Star Wars.

One Film Per Week is not going well this year. This is the 21st week of the year, and I've only watched 13 new film releases.

Hopefully I'll pick up the pace over the next seven months.

This evening's viewing: a long-overdue revisit to Wings of Desire. First seen many years ago at my beloved Filmhouse, this was the #film that introduced me to Wim Wenders, who would become one of my favourite film-makers.

Achingly beautiful piece of cinema. How many amazing works did the Filmhouse introduce me to that I'd likely never have seen otherwise? So looking forward to its return later this year...

I’ve no interest in the new Mad Max film. I didn’t like the last one.

I’ll watch it when it hits VOD later this year. Maybe.

I remember when the first one came out. It was a phenomenon at the time. It’s a pity the star turned out to be a raging bigot.
