And that's my Cannes reviews finished! I hope to get round to a formal write-up when I'm back from New York in three weeks time, but we'll see . . .
In the meantime, links to all my festival reviews can be found below. And, hell, I may as well rank them . . .
1. Mad Max: Fury Road
4. Son of Saul
8. Valley of Love
11. The Measure of a Man
I'd also like to draw your attention to my seemingly ever-developing site. I've included a few extras features, so feel free to have a browse and let me know what you think.
As you may have noticed, I've made the switch to star ratings and, while it gives me less room for differentiation, there's something pleasingly universal about the minimalism of a 5-star system. I've also included a feature to find all the films I've given each rating (it should be on the right-hand side of your page). I'm still a long way off updating all my reviews with the new scoring system but, when I do, that should be a fun little feature.
I think that's all for now. But, as I've mentioned, the site will be dormant for the next three weeks or so, while I'm in New York (a work-free trip, as promised to myself and Natalia, my wonderful, and ever-patient, girlfriend). But I'll take some time to integrate all these new features when I return. So keep your eyes peeled for that!
Thank you for all the support over the last three weeks or so, it means a lot! May is now my third 1,000+ pageview month in a row, which is amazing and all thanks to you!
And a huge thank you to Dan Wilshire and Talia, especially, who've both firmly cemented their title as The Murmur's biggest fans.
Until next time,
