Despite the glut of coming-of-age films which have saturated our screens of late, The Way Way Back manages to stand out.

What the heck does Laggies even mean?
Thus began the renaissance of Bradley Cooper
Bursting with humour, poignancy and a good healthy splash of blood, Martin McDonagh’s follow-up to In Bruges is a crazed masterpiece featuring standout performances from its leads. In many ways a barmier, bloodier companion piece to Charlie Kaufman’s Adaptation, Seven Psychopaths is on one hand an intricately worked out, highly self-referential film that’s all about the creative process. On the other hand, it’s an excuse for a ragtag band of brilliant characters to stand around saying funny things to one another. And really, what more could you want?
Our shamelessly self-indulgent feature BFFFF continues with Kayleigh Dray, Best For Film’s most prolific contributor and the only person we’ve ever met who can narrowly avoid a mugging, injure herself pole-dancing and have someone start photographing her on a train in the same afternoon. Kayleigh’s singing the praises of 90s Star Trek spoof Galaxy Quest, but will her arguments convince you?
TOO. MUCH. HAPPY.
GOOD PEOPLE IN A GOOD THING, HURRAH!
