We need to talk about Kevin

SF: Firstly must pretend I haven't read the book. The performances were nothing short of captivating. The pace and direction are perfect and even though I felt as if a year had passed - literally the film achieves everything it sets out to do. Not one you can really enjoy as such but a great movie nonetheless. 8/10

50 Eggs: The book is brilliantly harrowing but its format really doesn't lend itself to a screenplay, so the fact that this adaptation is largely successful is admirable. As good as it could have been, and that's a compliment. 8.5/10

DonkeyB: Deeply troubling, which I think is the point. Great use of music and colour palette. 9/10

Overall - 8.5/10

'The point', DonkeyB, 'is that there is no point'. Loved that bit!
