Film log: Watched Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie ★★★1/2
John Otway was/is the personification of punk’s DIY spirit. This fan-funded documentary was a lot of fun but it could have done with a few more critical voices. 🎥
I’m a fan of Wes Anderson’s films but, gosh, The French Dispatch is hard work. The premise is interesting but the execution is very dull. It looks beautiful but I cared nothing for what’s happening or any of the characters. I need to watch Rushmore again. 🎥
I never expect much from these things but this one had quite an emotional punch in the last third. Maybe it’s just my current state of mine but I was quite moved.
Film log - watched Spider-Man: No Way Home. I never expect much from these things but this one had quite an emotional punch in the last third. Maybe it’s just my current state of mind but I was made teary-eyed by a Spider-Man movie. 🎥
Tom Holland as Spider-Man is hard to dislike and this film is hard to dislike.

Aaron Sorkin did a good job of boiling down the trial into a two hour drama.
