Film Journal

THE FILM JOURNAL | February 2017

I look back at the films and TV shows I watched in the previous month, whether they were brand new, or simply unknown to me before. Dates are by UK release, and include releases straight to DVD and VOD.

§

Unmissable Those pieces of work that prove cinema is one of humanity’s better endeavours.
Example: Apocalypse Now

Recommended Extraordinary films that are must-sees, but perhaps not considered masterpieces.
Example: Kick-Ass

Avoid Movies that exhibit technical ineptitude, cause severe ideological malaise, or both.
Example: Grown Ups
