The Woman in the Window (2021, dir. Joe Wright)

An agoraphobic and alcoholic psychiatrist believes she witnesses a murder. A strong cast and at-times confident direction can’t save this attempt to emulate a De Palma-ish emulation in turn of Hitchcock. A silly script is the main issue: good actors have little to do, though Amy Adams clearly relishes the chance to play vulnerable. Copycat did this better.

Here’s the trailer.

Overlord (2018, dir. Julius Avery)

1944 France. A US squad behind German lines encounter a supersoldier programme. Well-mounted horror/military action hybrid that doesn’t quite make the most of its well-worn B-movie premise, but is great to look at and has an appealing young cast.

And here’s Lemonsquirtle’s POV.
