Busy busy busy (2)

Referendum is taking up quite sometime at the moment - and my book launch is happening this week as well!! So again - three films to intrigue - short reviews:

The Nice Guys is delicious fun. It is an exquisite homage to the 70's and with more than a knowing nod to Pulp Fiction in its zany approach to criminal mayhem. The police seem to just stand by and watch! Leadership theme: sometimes things are not what they seem!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is a romping and pacey movie with a fair few laughs. However, it does not have the same wow factor of the first one in this new franchise. If they make a third, they will need to step up the narrative content. Leadership Theme: use your whole team because not everyone is like you.

I saw Youth at the local film club as I missed it on general release. This is quite an amazing film but with a slow burn. But its builds to an almighty crescendo. See it if only for a rare appearance of Jane Fonda. Leadership theme: never say never.


Blogs 175/6/7: in my 2014/15/16 series of blogs about leadership ideas to be found in the movies of our time. You can read here as why I began doing this (with updates at the end of 2014 and 2015).
