Watched Can You Ever Forgive Me? ★★★★☆ great fun. 🎥
Watched: The Seventh Veil 1945 James Mason again! 10th 100 biggest UK cinematic hits of all time. Fairly bonkers melodrama. Cruel misogynist gets the girl! ★★★☆☆ 📽 🎬
Watched Colette ★★★☆☆, good fun. Perhaps better titled Willie.
Watched Beau Travail ★★★★★ enjoyed this dreamlike fable very much.
Shoplifters ★★★★☆ engrossing complex story, I think I missed a lot of the subtle points. Sweet, sad and though provoking. 📽
Watched Faces Places last weekend ★★★★☆ very much enjoyed the pace. A lot of film I’ve liked in the last year have be slower, meandering even.📽
A flock of roosting crows, black as night themselves, are threatened by the advancing shadows at dusk. They need light for protection so with the help of the Raven…
I’ve watched this with my class several times now and a few more myself as prep. It is a lovely animation and a really good film to discuss the elements of film. Especially sound and music. Crows and a Raven, what is not to like! I’d highly recommend it if you are looking for a short, 5 minute, film to watch in upper primary during literacy lessons.

Watched: Kedi ★★★★☆ quirky movie about cats of Istanbul. Nice drone and cat eye view shots.
