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!

The Prestige [2006]

“Are you watching closely?”


Image description: The image says the following: Directors: Christopher Nolan / Genres: Sci-fi Fantasy Psych Thriller / Year: 2006 / Rating: ****_ / Review: Incredible cast incl. Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson & the late David Bowie. Such great on-screen chemistry. The film itself is structured like a magic trick. It starts out with a question, and the flourish leads you to question life itself. Very entertaining.
