I rated Can You Ever Forgive Me 7/10 on IMDb


really good to see a film with tension, fear, and subterfuge that doesn’t have supernatural nonsense or gun-toting violence.

Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant are very persuasive in their roles. It is all but impossible to avoid glimpses of Withnail & I given the down-at-heel nature of both characters. Nonetheless, this stands distinct as cinematic ‘based on a true story’. The characters have a real journey as they join up, commit fraud, become friends, have problems, and finally part.

Nearly, they’re real characters with a mix of lovely qualities and at the same time they’re criminal, alcoholic degenerates.

Well worth seeing.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
