Back in my ¡Ay,
Mi Madre! review I mentioned that I wanted to explore more of Spanish
cinema, what I didn’t realise was just how quickly the next film would roll
around. But less than a week later a thriller set in Barcelona arrived on my
desk, and I knew I had to check it out. Well, Boi is many things and thankfully interesting is one of them.
So to set the scene, Boi (Bernat Quintana) is starting his first day as a
private chauffeur in Barcelona, but he has a lot on his mind. Including caring
for his Aunt (Fina Rius) and a breakdown in his relationship with his partner
Anna (Miranda Gas). All of this leads him to completely getting the time wrong
of when his first clients were arriving in the country so he has to rush and
bluff his way into picking up Gordon (Adrian Pang) and Michael (Andrew Lua) two
Chinese businessmen from Singapore. But that is only the start of three very
TL;DR – Get out is a masterpiece in tension, cinematography and action, it is perfectly cast, amazingly directed, and deeply affecting.
Score – 5 out of 5 stars
Wow, I had no idea, absolutely none, about just how good this film would be, and from a first-time features director no less. Get Out is a masterpiece from the acting, to the cinematography, to the music, everything, seriously this is the first 5 out of 5 film for 2017. Now because of the type of film that it is I can’t really discuss it without immediately getting into spoilers, so because of this, and also because it has been out in the rest of the world for months, this is going to be a [FULL SPOILER REVIEW] so if you have not seen it beware that we will be holding nothing back and it will be best if you go in as spoiler free as possible, a sentiment not held up by the trailer it seems. So if you want a non-spoiler review let me just say no movie has affected me in this way in a very long time and I highly recommend it as it is a masterpiece of cinema. So with that in mind, this is your last chance because we go full spoiler now.
