The King review – Timothee Chalamet Holds The Kingdom and Film Together | London Film Festival 2019

David Michôd's The King begins in a sloppy mess full of actors giving pantomime-like performances, especially two actors.

Chapman screams and shouts in the most child-like-obviously-acting (terribly) way, whilst Mendelsohn phones in any ounce of past talent to nothing more than a few…

Why I love Marriage Story, I'd like to write my own tale. It's a strange mix of melodrama, romance and comedy, Noah Baumbach's finely tuned film is a tremendous success.

Nothing is glorified or brushed upon, Joker is a fictional tale seen through a realistic lens. A fantastically twisted origin story that completely differentiates itself from all past iterations, it is truly a unique take on the character. Todd Phillips' approach is to take the basis for the Joker, a comic book character and place…
