I'm in shock.
I've honestly never seen a film as consistently good as Children Of Men.
The trailer looked okay but there were worrying hints that it would at some point go s#it. Those hints turned out to be red herrings. The film is quality from start to finish. I was on the edge of my seat, for real. I've never seen anything like it. I honestly think it might be my favourite film of all time. Apparently it's based on a book by PD James. I thought she was a boring crime writer. Not a dystopian prophet of the premier kind.
I don't want to ruin the film, but I do want you to go and see it.
Here's the trailer:
A word here about trailers. One of my best mates hates them specifically because they ruin the plot of a film. I agree that some of them can do this. My problem with this trailer is that it makes you think the film might be a bit rubbish. It promises so much it's hard to believe it. Let me tell you now, go and see this f#cking film.
I have nothing else to say about sunday. I stumbled out of the theatre. Amazed. We'd only been looking for something to do while we ate our popcorn.
