Mixed Media, Thursday 2 July 2015

Not much time to write, just wanting to jot some things down:

  • Birdman: enormously impressive work to make the entire film look like a single take. The story it tells is engaging, too, with lovely performances all round. I still can’t make up my mind if it’s a great film, or just a brilliant novelty. Perhaps both.
  • Results: a lot more off-beat than the trailer suggests. I don’t think I actually enjoyed it, though.
  • Foxcatcher: dull.

This evening I finshed the first book I have read in months: Stuart MacBride’s latest Logan McRae book The Missing and the Dead. I’ve started loads of books recently, but nothing has kept my attention for more than a few pages. This was a good one, though.
