First Date Movie Review
by Cas Harlow
Viewed as some cheap-as-chips am-dram Tarantino tribute, Sundance darling First Date is an 'interesting' debut from writer/directors Manuel Crosby and Daniel Knapp that somehow just about lands on the right side of respectful.
Maggie Gyllenhaal's strikingly assured directorial debut will likely garner a lot of attention, not least for a trifecta of excellent performances from Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley and Dakota Johnson.
Adam McKay's Chicken Little for adults is just shy of being funny, just shy of being insightful and just shy of being a good movie. What it isn't shy of is impotently railing at the stupidity of government and media.
