Film of the Month – November
November was another strong month at the cinema, and it was tough to leave out excellent films such as ‘Leviathan’ and ‘What We Do In The Shadows’, but these are the three that resonated the most with me this month!
‘Interstellar’ is a flawed film from the mind of Christopher Nolan, but it’s flawed only in a way that a film with such ambition and scope can be. It doesn’t always nail the more outlandish elements of the plot, but it excels with the emotional beats and delivers an emotionally satisfying, spectacular piece of science fiction.
It’s been a good year for British film, and ‘The Imitation Game’ is another superb effort, featuring a great performance from Benedict Cumberbatch as the codebreaking genius Alan Turing, who led the efforts to crack the Nazi ‘Enigma’ code during WWII.
One of my favourite’s of the year, ‘Nightcrawler’ is a thrilling journey into the dark and seedy underbelly of the people behind the stories that fuel the 24 hour news cycle. Featuring an excellent lead performance from Jake Gyllenhaal, this is a truly terrific film.
