Happy End - "Darkly comic and stingingly relevant"

For Michael Haneke to title a film Happy End is a surprise. Between Funny Games, Amour and The White Ribbon, the bland term of happy cannot be applied. 569 mais palavras

Happy End Review

It says a lot about the current state of children’s/tweens’ entertainment that the most unwatchable thing in the new Michael Haneke film, Happy End, is not a daughter poisoning her mother or an old man asking a group of strangers to push him into traffic, but a Youtube vlog. 601 mais palavras

Happy End (Fr/Austria) ⭐⭐½

When a Michael Haneke film clicks (Hidden or Amour), it can be an incredible and exquisite thing but when it doesn’t (Funny Games), it can be irritating as hell. 210 mais palavras

London Film Festival 2017: Day Five

Since arriving in London on Tuesday, I have had my one of the lenses in my glasses banged slightly out of place at a Wolf Alice gig, had my throat feel like it was doused in acid thanks to being sent with some accidentally well-past-use toothpaste, gained a painful yet hard-to-find ulcer on the inside of my lips, been incapable of getting an uninterrupted night’s sleep for whatever reason, and (as of yesterday) stricken down with a cold that I have no doubt inadvertently infected many other fine members of the Press Corp with by now.   2.655 mais palavras
