EIFF 2019: Bittersweet Symphony (2019) dir: Jamie Adams

This amateurish and unfocussed mess of a film feels like watching someone else's home movie. Despite the evident talents of some of those in front of the camera (including Suki Waterhouse and Jennifer Grey), it is ultimately a rather cringeworthy affair. Oh, and it has nothing to do with The Verve.

A Star is Born (2018) starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

This fourth incarnation of William A. Wellman and Robert Carson's story turns out to be far from the Cooper/Gaga vanity project that you might have feared. Even Andrew Dice Clay is great in a film whose emotional imprint will stay with you for a long time.
