I saw it in iMax so had the speakers blasting at me the whole time and it was a bit like being at a gig haha
Yeah, the sound was incredibly irritating. Relentless. Attempting to keep the whole thing at fever-pitch all the way through. It worked for Uncut Gems but really really doesn't work for this. My prediction - in the future, much like The Stone Roses, people will regard this film as a joke.

I predict that in the future they will send the film backwards through time for Christopher Nolan to make it

Cornish film Bait which was on film 4 during the week. It's in black in white with some effects to make it look a little like some old news report from the 1950s. I missed the first half hour but the story was conveyed well sometimes by just focusing on everyday objects or briefly the characters in the film without any dialogue good sense of realism.

I really liked this. They shot it on hand crank cameras from the 1920s which had no audio input meaning they had to dub the sound in post, which gave it that old bbc docudrama feel, and contributed to the atmosphere, I felt

Watched Okja at the weekend which is a Bong Joon Ho film from 2017. Think it came after Snowpiercer so was his second (mostly) English language feature (I think). About a little girl taking care of a genetically engineered "super-pig". It's got genetic engineering and animal rights activism and corporate greed and might put you off eating sausages. Good one for young teenagers. I enjoyed it. Does that Studio Ghibli thing of combining some very sweet sentimentalism with some things that are darker and more hard-hitting. There is a really great action/escape sequence set in Seoul near the start.

Also Notes On Rave on Friday night. Was never much of a raver but nevertheless recognised quite a few of the "heads" interviewed for this and knew all the spots well.
