  2. Thomas's rating of the film Archipelago

    Stodgy, felt too stagy much of the time.

  3. un flic's rating of the film Archipelago

    Seen it 3 times stunning in its banality tension when the daughter finally explodes! Subtle tonality of the setting, a film about English emotional coolness to the nth degree almost unbearable but very real.easily the best of Hedges 3 films on the same upper class, she may have to find another subject to progress

    that drop of rain water on the painter's face

  7. Ben Dooley's rating of the film Archipelago

    A family holiday in the Scilly Isles as a send-off for the brother, going to Africa to help in sex education. It gets the tensions that can play out over tiny things at a dinner table, really about unspoken histories between mum, son and daughter. It's melancholic, but also a deeply deadpan satire - an examination of the hypocrisies of the British (upper-)middle class. Great use of sound, frame and offscreen space.

  15. Kelvane's rating of the film Archipelago

    Excellent. You can see the emotion traveling through the family like a current.

  16. Ouibonjour's rating of the film Archipelago

    Wonderful film. The breathtaking landscapes with washed out colors accompanied by chipping birds and the sound of trees moving in the wind all created a cold and gloomy ambience that went perfectly with the characters and the distance between them.

  17. Vex's rating of the film Archipelago

    the shoot at sea its beautiful

  18. InsertOzuReferencehere's rating of the film Archipelago

    One of the most cinematically complete British films of the last 20 years. Not since Bill Douglas has a British film-maker utilized so perfectly the small details in both life and human interactions. It's almost like a mix between Chantal Akerman and Ozu.

  19. C.B.L.S's rating of the film Archipelago

    A film of such understated beauty and grace. The way Hogg experiments with light, shading and colour are sublime. No one is making films of this calibre in British cinema at the moment. Simply astonishing.

  20. Pawelito's rating of the film Archipelago

    There is something morbidly English in the washout, watercolour-like landscape of Archipelago that acts as a backdrop to mundane stories of lost composure and disowned emotions in a class-ridden nuances played out to the minutest details of everyday life..
