Film Reviews: Never Look Away and Spiderman: Far From Home

Never Look Away
1 July 2019
189 mins
R
Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (Director) 
Tom Schilling, Sebastian Koch, Paula Beer
Drama

German artist Kurt Barnert has escaped East Germany and now lives in West Germany, but is tormented by his childhood under the Nazis and the GDR-regime. (IMDB Synopsis)

Never Look Away is a stunning piece of cinema. One repeated line is "Everything true is beautiful" and that certainly applies to this movie. Thought clocking in at over three hours, it never felt long. The action is perfectly paced, the acting stunning, and the soundtrack and cinematography both sublime. This is definitely a film I could watch again. I loved every minute of it.


Spiderman: Far From Home
1 July 2019
129 mins
PG-13
Jon Watts (Director) 
Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Jake Gyllenhaal
Fantasy/Sci-Fi/Adventure

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever. (IMDB Synopsis)

Spiderman: Far From Home is a great addition to the MCU. Like its predecessor, it is chock full of humour and great action sequences, and Tom Holland's excellent performance gives the piece, and Peter as a character, a lot of heart. I was laughing aloud, along with many others in the audience, and several moments stuck with me after I left the cinema. A solid 4.5 stars.
