THIS WEEK’S TV AND FILM REVIEWS
The latest film and TV reviews, by our trusted writers, including Meryl Streep gunning for Oscar No. 50, Matt Damon grappling with his size, and a TV series which bears no aesthetic relation to Game of Thrones whatsoever.
The Post – Dir: Steven Spielberg.
“A gripping history lesson that champions investigative journalism. A lesson that still needs to be heeded.”
Downsizing – Dir: Alexander Payne
“Part-comedy, part-dystopian sci-fi and part-sludgy human drama, Downsizing is an examination of America that is not as good as it could be.”
Britannia – Creator: Jez Butterworth
“It was always apparent Britannia was going to be compared to Game of Thrones. The Butterworth brothers claim to have never seen Game of Thrones. And it appears they don’t have any desire to, either.”
