Must Go
While 1917 is realistically gruesome, director Sam Mendes depicts the horrors of war – beautifully. By that I mean, even the most horrifying and sad shots in the film, while highly stimulating in the aesthetic and emotional sense, are never extremely graphic, and you are never hit over the head with it. 1917, in this way, is a beautiful artistic masterpiece, never straying close to being shock art, but not holding back at the same time.
There is an especially touching scene in a bombed-out town where paths are crossed with a French woman (Claire Duburcq) caring for an orphaned infant. It’s a reminder that humanity still exists, even within the bounds of war.
A great film.

Netfix, shows I’ve watched so far!

Little Woman

An enjoyable period drama about the growing up and loves of a group of sisters in 1800’s America. Superb acting from the cast and a great depiction of the presentation of the era, although it is all a bit too clean and idyllic at times. There isn’t a strong single plot but instead a selection of events which are interesting enough and never dull.
