I went to see Banshees of Inisherin at the weekend. I wasn’t quite prepared for just how sad it was (found his other films to be quite entertaining despite the heavy themes). It really hit me hard, and not just because of the poor donkey. Good film though, cast were great, but not sure I’ll be watching it again in a hurry.
Nothing ground breaking, but all stood out to me for different reasons.
Barbarian was only disappointing imo, unless you are in the mood for a messy turn your mind off senseless rehash horror with a great setup that is arguably ruined; but this is also coming from someone who is not a fan of Justin Long, so results may vary.
 Corrected the name of ‘Sweetie’ as I got it completely wrong and added JustWatch links as my punishment.
Barbarian - First half was really tense and good fun, unfortunately the cinema projector broke about 50 mins in and we had to wait 10 mins for it to resume and I think it took me out of it, which us quite annoying. Did feel like they weren’t sure how to end it though. 3.5/5
Smile - Fucking hell, wasn’t quite prepared for how much this would effect me. Really unsettling and visceral throughout with some really disturbing and realistic depictions of from when I have struggled with my own mental health. Loved the ending too. Going to stay with me for a while, I think.
