The Vast of Night [2019]

“People are saying there’s something in the sky.”

The film captivated me, and the way the film was shot made me feel like I was there, tagging along to solve a mystery, only really being pulled out of it at the end. Some scenes in this film are like a masterclass in cinematography (I'm thinking particularly of the long single shot scene). An otherwise simple script and question: where do they all keep disappearing to? I think it's aliens, mate. Worth the watch!

Ad Astra [2019]

“In the end, the son suffers the sins of the father.”


 Image description: The image says the following: Directors: James Gray / Genres: Sci-fi Action Thriller / Year: 2019 / Rating: **___ / Review: This slow, sullen but visually stellar space-based thriller follows Roy's journey as he seeks to fill the void between himself and his father. Personally found Pitt pretty unbelievable in this role. Tommy Lee Jones gave a great performance as his reproachful and senile father, but his presence arrived too late to make any real difference. This film left me feeling empty. Would probably not recommend.
