The Killing Of A Sacred Deer. Film Review.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Barry Keoghan, Raffey Cassidy, Sunny Suljic, Alicia Silverstone, Bill Camp.

Damnation of any kind can eat away at your soul, from the careless whispering challenge to the outburst in which people regret their poorly chosen words of anger, all is sent out into the world like a Pandora’s Box of ill will; the revenge of something taken and the need to redress the balance is uppermost in such human episodes of grief made sentiments taken to extremes.

It is impossible to ignore the magic, the film that will leave you spellbound and entranced, even without trying too hard it will leave you on the verge of feeling the slack jaw and the misty eyed, a memory of feeling the optimism with any story told when you were a child and seeing that tale run with the grace of imagination installed into it by the writing, the way it was told and the small details of the descriptions added into it by a cool parent.

There are films that engross you, that pull you in from the very start, the intrigue of the dynamic opening, that no matter how the film progresses from that point, no matter the connection made between film-goer and intended meaning by the writer and director, you are already living and breathing in the black celluloid dystopia on offer, such is the surreal quality of life and of The Lobster.

Saving Mr. Banks, Film Review. FACT Cinema, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Annie Buckley, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Jason Schwartzman, B.J. Novak, Bradley Whitford, Ruth Wilson, Melanie Paxson, Victoria Summer, Kathy Baker, Rachel Griffiths, Dendrie Taylor, Kimberly D’Armond.

Saving Mr. Banks is a film that exemplifies the thought that somewhere between novel and film the life of the author is lost in the complexity of producing a cinema hit. The life of the writer, whose soul is poured into the painful birth of producing something that in a lot of cases is a cathartic way of exorcising a childhood memory, is overlooked. Cinema audiences, perhaps comforted in many cases by the end result, neglect the person who gave them the character in the first place.
