Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool

A proper little charmer

(Edit) 10/04/2019

A small film in the nicest possible way, this warm romance - based on truth - boasts several stand-out performances (notably Bening and Bell) along with a deft directorial touch.

It doesn't turn the world upside down but it isn't trying to.

An enjoyable, romantic, night-in sort of a film.

Whisky Galore!

A feelgood story,but not a feelgood film

(Edit) 01/11/2018

I wanted to like this film, but....

The cast is promising and the story comfy, so it ought to work but it doesn't.

While some performances are nuanced, poor Eddie Izzard's is decidedly not.

The script is predictable.

The direction is pedestrian.

The cinematography lacks the beauty one would hope for.

It isn't quite awful, but it's a close-run thing at times, I'm afraid.

Love and Mercy

Terrific if the subject interests you

(Edit) 25/10/2017

It did me. Yes some of the acting is a bit hammy (though the young Brian is magnificent) but the recreation of the early-period recordings and falling out is magnificent, as is the music (natch). While I enjoyed it a lot, I felt that it was too one paced and, in places one dimensional, to really grab the interest of someone who didn't come to the film already wanting to watch it. I did. If you don't, then beware.
