131 days in a row…

131 days in a row at the cinema! Today I saw French family drama Jusqu’à la garde / Custody.

Custody is like a circular pencil: it doesn’t go anywhere and has no point. Seriously, 90 minutes of exposition for a 3-minute anticlimax!? Yes, director Xavier Legrand does a skillful job of building and maintaining a sense of dread, but faced with the banality of the story and the terrible decisions all the characters make, the dread is more related to watching this film than the film itself.

Out of a possible 10, I have 6 Fs to give.
