    Ok I love Lovers Rock but ffs Small Axe is not a film!

    Great to see Da 5 Bloods.

    I guess the lack of Minari is due to release dates in the UK?

    I know it technically shouldn’t even be on the list, but I refuse to believe they saw Mangrove and ranked Da 5 Bloods above it. The list reminded me that I really need to see Saint Maud.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Yes, as well as anywhere else outside of US (it’s an international poll). This probably also counts towards Nomadland ranking only 8th; it did have a bigger festival showing than Minari which may be partly how it ranked as high as it did.

    You weren’t a fan of Da 5 Bloods?

    Saint Maud is excellent but it is also one of the most terrifying things on screen I have seen in my life.

    I would give Da 5 Bloods about a 6.5/10.

    On Saint Maud – I love Jennifer Ehle so I’m looking forward to it! I didn’t want to go to the cinema when it was out though.

    I love the Relic inclusion. What an underrated film.

    I think it’s just VOD right now. I lied. If you live in the states it’s on HBO Max apparently.

    It’s on Sky streaming services in Europe, should be a cheap rental everywhere else by now.

    Yeah I was fortunate enough to go to an outdoor cinema screening for Saint Maud. Haven’t been to an indoor cinema since Parasite! I’m too scared of Covid and the spread of this new variant in the UK isn’t very helpful.

    I hadn’t been impressed by Ehle’s work before but she was truly astonishing here. Perhaps it was due to the shocking nature of the film (it is a horror after all) but she gave one of my favourite supporting performances of the year. Just to warn you it is very very scary! And I say this as a fan of the horror genre.
