Joanna Hogg United Kingdom, 2010

Thomas's rating of the film Archipelago

Meticulously well observed drama of a family trapped together, figuratively and literally. The atmosphere is prickly and the long held shots/scenes are remorselessly uncomfortable and voyeuristic and. Hogg couldn't squeeze out more passive aggression if she tried. I got much more out of this with repeated viewing.
