Movie reviews

I saw two movies this weekend, a rare treat.


Far From the Madding Crowd is a fabulous film adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel. It’s an emotional love story, beautifully filmed and acted. Marcelle and I agreed we would be going back for a second viewing.

Ex Machina is a futuristic thought-provoking film (R rated) about Artificial Intelligence, genius, innocence and freedom. A spare film with a small cast, it projects a big picture. It’s a film I’m glad I’ve seen, might even see again, but not a must-go for everyone.
