The film Darkest Hour.
I agree it was a good film.
How I rated films I've watched so far this year:
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri 9/10
Very funny, good characters
Darkest Hour 8/10
Focuses on key part Churchill played in fighting on, two marks off for cringeworthy inaccurate underground scene
Last Flag Flying 8/10
Funny film, well acted, especially Cranston, slightly anti-war but but not enough for my taste
The Post 2/10
Boring attempt to cover contemporary issues of free speech and feminism through historical lens
Best film so far, very bleak, set in Russia, beautiful images and some darkly funny scenes
The Shape of Water 7/10
Okay sort of fantasy/love story, well done if you like that
Phantom Thread - not seen yet
Very good film. Agree with Slimboy about the "underground" scene - absolute nonsense.
My favourite in recent viewings - "Hacksaw Ridge".
I just saw Phantom Thread. I'd give it 10/10.
Excellent actkng. I not sure if it's entirely intentional, but I understand the film as a comment on contemporary anxiety about gender roles and excellently executed. Some will find the plot twist unsatisfying, but I tend to understand it metaphorically in relation to the theme. Plus it's got some very funny scenes.
