What are people saying?

  • In Prague's rating of the film The Night

    3,5 Watched twice in 2 days to work out, as if I was the boy in the film across whose face the shadows of the windmill rotate like the pages of a family history he will spend the rest of his life trying to unravel or like the snapshots of a disbanded album he'll spend nights cataloguing faces in. Syria under French mandate, Brit tenure, precarious military rule. Fall of idealists. Life sheltered in Claesz homesteads.
