With so many movies on offer at the London Film Festival, it is often difficult to plough through all the full-length reviews. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered, as our popular Quick Read brings you a range of festival favourites without the long review. Instead, these quick picks offer a summary of our thoughts alongside our star rating. Our first Quick Read at LFF features Kajillionaire, Siberia and Never Gonna Snow Again.
Kajillionaire is showing in cinema’s nationwide now
Director: Miranda July
Visually stunning, Abel Ferrara’s journey into existential angst never quite finds its footing, despite Defoe in the saddle. The resulting film feeling more like a grand artistic experiment than an accessible movie. The descent into a dreamlike void between reality and fiction not only losing the viewer but purposefully alienating them. Of course, some will find Siberia to be a work of art, but for me, it was a desolate, cold, and a rather lonely place to spend 92 minutes.
