Page Eight is lovingly turned, with elegant writing, a flawless cast and a heartfelt message from writer/director David Hare about the danger zone where spies and politicians meet. The tension builds gently as we follow the fortunes of Johnny Worricker, a jazz-loving charmer who works high up at MI5 as an intelligence analyst. It’s a part made for Bill Nighy and he purrs out bon mots with a weary panache that women 20 years younger find irresistible. One such is his neighbour, Nancy Pierpan (Rachel Weisz), in a Battersea mansion block. The question for Johnny is whether her interest in him is genuine or hides something darker. As his boss (Michael Gambon) puts it: “Distrust is a terrible habit.” Questions of trust, honour and friendship rumble through the play. The characters exchange oblique repartee as a plot about a damning dossier unwinds. It’s not to be missed.

Harry W (ru) wrote: Lynch's most morally hopeless and frightening film to date, besides Inland Empire. Lost Highway is a captivating and genuinely fascinating piece of art, something to marvel at. It is something to stir and inspire....but to enjoy, I'm not too sure. I found Lost Highway to be really hard to enjoy, because there's something about it that is so uninvolving and frigid that it just doesn't seem to have the heart of Mulholland Drive or the passion of Blue Velvet or even the depth of Eraserhead. The characters are so cold, particularly Partricia Arquette, that you barely have any chance to even try to like them before they've transisitioned into completely new people, similar to in Mulholland. The story is very dark and noirish, but just doesn't really resonate anything within me. It's a horror film before anything, and fans of surrealism will enjoy for sure.
Margaret W (it) wrote: Gorgeous cinematography and a heartbreaking love story with a realistic, un-Hollywood-esque ending. This movie was haunting in its starkness and sense of longing. Set in the Arctic and London during WWII, Avik is a recon pilot photographer who sends messages to his childhood love, who is a recon photo interpreter. In one of my favorite scenes, the couple meets in the dome of Royal Albert Hall as a concert practice is underway below. Bombing begins, and as they count the seconds between release and impact, they talk and kiss. Extremely moving, dramatic, and unique. Love flourishes in the most hostile environments. The childhood scenes in a tuberculosis ward are so visually and emotionally stirring they brought tears to my eyes. An Xray is their love letter and "map" to their hearts. Multiple levels of symbolism, which I love. Not a movie for everyone, especially if you insist on happy endings. But it's the journey and not merely the destination, and this trip is unforgettable.

The first hour is a tour-de-force especially, towards the end it tails off but this is still a more than worthwhile watch and kicks the ass out of 95% of war movies made in America and beyond.
