“Know your place. Keep your place. Be a shoe.”

A few more movies I forgot to mention:

Snowpiercer (imdb | rotten tomatoes) started off incredibly well: dystopian claustrophobia, hurtling metaphors for class struggle, et cet. It got increasingly weird and metaboring and man-behind-the-curtain toward the end, to its detriment. It was good, but I was ready to like it even more. Except Tilda Swinton. I’m not sure I could like her any more than I liked her here. Gawds, those teeth.

The Sweeney (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was crap. Apparently it was a BBC show in the 70s; remind me never to watch that. Also, memo to Ray Winstone: just because you’re a producer doesn’t mean you should make someone write in sex scenes with Hayley Atwell. It strained credulity.
