Lucky (2017) starring Harry Dean Stanton and David Lynch

Lucky is both a detailed final snapshot of a fine American character actor and a touching, often funny rumination on human mortality. While there's an inevitable tincture of sadness here, it's nowhere near as depressing a film as you might expect.

EIFF 2018: Terminal (2018) written and directed by Vaughn Stein

This futuristic neo-noir - starring Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher and Mike Myers - boasts neon-drenched heavy-stylised visuals but drowns under wannabe hip pretension and a lack of purpose. Really, shouldn't Robbie be doing better things nowadays after her Oscar-nominated performance in I, Tonya?
