Directed by Richard Ayoade
Richard Ayoade is perhaps my favourite “new” filmmaker. Between this film and his last, “Submarine”, it’s obvious that he has a deep respect and affection for cinema. His films seem very self-aware of themselves, and every shot and lighting set-up appears to be his own personal choice in telling the story. As a result, it’s a very neat package, and cast very well. There were times when I found myself unable to sympathise with characters, but in a film like this, it’s very difficult to argue with. I await his next film with guttural anticipation.
