27. The Future – Miranda July (2011)

First Viewing.

If only more contemporary movies could be this charming, funny and feature a talking cat. You’ll more than likely recall the charming, funny, but talking-cat-free debut feature of July’s called, um, now what was it? Oh yes, Me and You and Everyone We Know, it was full of subtly observed quirky human behaviour. The Future follows the same path, but adds a little more plot, a little more pathos and a little more wit. It’s certainly an improvement over it’s older sibling, and it’s not to be missed. Miss July is certainly proving herself to be a most talented writer, actress, and film-maker. We should all bow our heads in in gratitude as we- and I don’t just mean anonymous internet bloggers here- need more female filmakers.

Marks out of ten – Nine
