Five film reviews; five hundred words in total; seven days.
Straight from the rather obtuse prelude, I will be doing five film reviews this week, each one coming to a hundred words in length. This is really a challenge I’ve set for myself: to see how succinct I can be in both summarising a film and in critiquing it. I’ve just written a micro-review for Bicycle Thieves (1948), and, I can tell your right now, it’s pretty damn hard. I’ve actually written one before for The Long Goodbye (1973), and that’s probably my best to-date, though I also wrote one on Hurlyburly (1998), but it was more of a rant, really. Hopefully my next review coming up for The Class (2008) will turn out better.
