My 25 Favourite Films: boxd.it/3XgFA
Top 4: Faves I'm currently vibing with.
Iannucci smashes the mold set by his hilarious yet cynical filmography, delivering a gorgeous, life-affirming take on the Dicken's material. The Personal History of David Copperfield is the real deal - a full package, moving at a brisk pace from warm character moment to hilarious comedy set-piece and back again in a cyclical dance of storytelling.
It's truly wondrous and the kind of film that makes life after it's over a little sweeter.
Maniac will always be one of my favorite shows. From the opening scene in episode one I'm totally entranced by the whimsical nature of the narrative, the beautiful score by Dan Romer, as well as the very creative retrofuturist production design. As the show progresses the performances by the two leads really stand out among their work in the past as truly earnest portrayals of Owen and Annie. Justin Theroux's overacting is brilliant and hilarious and totally carries some scenes.
I'll always be in the mood for a rewatch.

A horrific, arcane mystery nibbles away at the minds of two detectives that grow less and less confident that they uncovered the truth behind it all in '95. Now twenty years later, the older, wasted away versions of themselves have no choice but to solve the mystery…

Watching this movie with its tweed, Wes Anderson style uniforms, it's cute child stars,…
