Never Let Me Hunger

Thursday and I'm out in Warrenville working at a Starbucks for the afternoon. Followed that with a good dinner & beer over at Rock Bottom then a 5-something screening of Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go (2010), which was a secret screening at Fantastic Fest. Really like the style of this film and the retro science fiction. Would have preferred if the movie remained almost entirely during the children's timeline. Didn't care much for their older selves or the relationship drama. Didn't like Kiera Knightley's character nor did I buy that character's motivations. Despite my problems with the film it's still worth checking out. 7/10

Yes, everything you've heard or read about Steve McQueen's Hunger (2008) is true. Powerful flick. Incredible long take conversation sequence and possibly the best I've seen. Uncomfortable but absolutely worth that uneasiness. Love Fassbender more and more everyday. High recommendation. 8/10
