Movie Review – The Mule (2018)

The Mule, 2018.

Directed by Clint Eastwood.

Starring Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Michael Peña, Laurence Fishburne, Taissa Farmiga, Alison Eastwood and Andy Garcia.

Synopsis:

A 90-year-old war veteran struggling for cash after the collapse of his flower business is enticed into running drugs by a Mexican cartel.

Clint Eastwood is still everyone’s favourite slightly problematic old dude. He’s an all-time legend of the movies and so he’s able to get away with being a little nutty and conservative. It’s into that landscape that his new movie, The Mule arrives – his first on-screen role since Trouble With the Curve back in 2012. With Eastwood sparkling and grouching his way through the story of a nonagenarian horticulturalist who becomes a drug runner for a Mexican cartel, this is definitely going to be your grandfather’s new favourite film. It’s Narcos with a bus pass.

All of that sounds like criticism,

Song You Need to Know: Zayn, ‘Good Years’
At some point, any person who has spent their teens as a professional performer starts to wonder if they wasted their good years. Often, that reflection comes later in life, when the world begins to slow down around them. For Zayn Malik, it seems to be happening at the age of 25. Only two solo albums into his post-One Direction career, he’s openly considering and perhaps even regretting the time he lost.

In the midst of Icarus Falls, a too-long album that loses Malik’s charm in all the ideas it tries to get across,

Movie Review – Lucky (2017)

Lucky, 2017

Directed by John Carroll Lynch.

Starring Harry Dean Stanton, David Lynch, James Darren, Tom Skerritt and Ed Begley Jr.

Synopsis:

Lucky is elderly and lives alone. When he collapses at home, he realises he has to face up to his inevitable decline and accept it

Harry Dean Stanton’s penultimate film is also his swan song, one that’s released in the UK just a day short of the first anniversary of his death. The fact that he’s gone lingers like a delicate shadow over Lucky as we walk hand in hand with the elderly man of the title who takes a journey of self-discovery as he comes to terms with his own mortality.

He’s alone but, as he stresses, he’s not lonely. He’s never married, has no children – that he knows of – but admits he’s been in love during his life. He has friends,
