Critical Week: All for one
Much more involving was Terence Davies' The Deep Blue Sea, a quietly gruelling post-war romance starring the amazing Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston. Miranda July's The Future is deliberately quirky but also full of telling observations about relationships and life. Sion Sono's Guilty of Romance is bold and difficult and exhilarating. The Texan indie Red White & Blue is disturbing and unpredictable. And The British Guide to Showing Off is a colourful and lurid doc about the hilarious Alternative Miss World competition. Even the relentlessly inspirational disabled-dolphin movie, cleverly titled Dolphin Tale, was surprisingly involving even if it used the possibilities for 3D even less than The Three Musketeers did.
