Mullan is utterly brilliant in Tyrannosaur. And Olivia Coleman is not too far behind him

Don’t know if I’d call it a masterpiece by I can’t think of a better ‘comedy’ than Four Lions.

A Prophet’s a great, great film, 100%.

Best modern prison film by far.

I reckon I might bump Uncut Gems, Whiplash and The Irishman up to “masterpiece” status at some point.

OJ: Made in America for sure.

The Pianist is a really good shout. Must watch that again.

Hello Eric. Did you not like the film, The Irishman?

I liked it quite a lot (for all its faults)

I found it to be very moving

You mean in the last 5 seconds when his daughter was like ‘you’re a shit dad m8’

Mainly I found it very moving to see a life elapse into nothing but regret through a combination of inertia and subservience

Think we’ve spoke about this before, but Michelle Williams, fuck. Absolute all-time actor for me. That scene outside the shop in Manchester By The Sea ruins me. She kills me in virtually every film she’s in.

And Moonlight, christ. I’d struggle to put into words how great and important a film i think that is. Sat there for ages after the credits in complete silence. Definitive masterpiece.
