Fish Tank

Really awful.

(Edit) 27/02/2019

Dreadful, a lot of swearing, OK in some instances, but it has to have something else going for it, not just dancing and

jumping up and down.

On Chesil Beach

Confusing.

(Edit) 26/11/2018

I agree with the above review mostly. Was the director and screenwriter just out of college?

Some of the dialogue was so corny, some of the music so inappropriate. Although I love classical

music, even that didn't sound quite right. What's wrong with silence? French and Danish films seem to get it right. Was the girl meant to be at fault re. the wedding night, god the guy was so inept and insensitive

(and I am a bloke!). Overall quite a disaster I think. I'd really like to read a review from someone who liked

it, maybe I've got it all wrong.

The Kid with a Bike

O K for TV.

(Edit) 03/10/2018

Really quite pathetic. Very simple story, could have been acceptable as a half hour TV program, but lots of unnecessarily long drawn out sequences, to make up for time?

Samsara

Quite depressing!

(Edit) 03/10/2018

This film really points out the insanity of the human race. Wonderful images, and all that, but that isn't the point, is it? There is a lot of good, great people in the world, but this seems to prove they are vastly outnumbered!? After seeing this, I'll have a second attempt at becoming vegetarian.
