Set the Thames on Fire full movie review - They come from dark clouds like rain Melancholy floods and that is all
Here's a spoiler-free review...
This film challenges depiction, classification and genre placement. Visual poetry tending to depress the spirit.
Sadness, endless sadness, melancholy longing; pain. Miserable, sickening, incoherent, absurd, extremely inspired nonsense. A Deliciously Dark Comedy - Needless to say, I love every damn bit of it!!!
Don't watch this if you have a limited sphere of thinking. It's important that you understand what you're in for. If you can't sit through a film that requires exertion and intuitive thinking, you're best to just stay away and prevent people from bashing a great film.

The Mighty Boosh - TV Series (2003?2007) Flowers - TV Series (2016)
Not a masterpiece by any means. But strong performances, solid acting and cinematic atmosphere accompanied with quiet sound of rain.
An Amazing First Film - I hope the makers will keep making movies like this. In addition to profitable work.
After watching this picture for the third time it's still growing on me!
