Each day during our final week, one of our regular writers will pick out seven highlights from our seven years of existence. Today, it’s the turn of Indy Datta, who has been reviewing new releases for Europe’s Best Website for all seven of those years. Actually, scratch that, because the lazy bastard stopped after reviewing Creed two years ago. Maybe he gave up after that to pursue his true metier as a predictor of best supporting actor Oscars. After he recovered from that burn, we asked him to sum up his 7 years of watching and reviewing.
Okay, we said we were closing down back in December, but we really mean it this time. Nevertheless, MostlyFilm has TEN BLOODY DAYS of premium content for you before we pull down the shutters, with one or two new posts every day from now until Oscar night and beyond. To introduce our week-and-a-bit of wonders, here’s CaulorLime’s elegy to how we started and where we’re finishing.

It’s the end of an era for us; indeed it is the end of us. After almost seven years, MostlyFilm – for most of this decade, Europe’s Best Website – is calling it a day. But we’re not going to just walk away without leaving you a few things to remember us by. Between now and the New Year we’ll be giving you some of our signature columns, and in early January we will look back at our favourites from the last seven years.
So, to begin our farewell, we bring you the Monoglot Movie Club Season Finale, with a slight tweak in the rules to make it feel special. For (almost) the last time, let’s go over to our man in… Front of Netflix?
“So these 13 Poles walked into a bar…” starts Spank The Monkey, ominously.
The 61st BFI London Film Festival was awash with fabulous performances by female lead actors, including those that anchored both the Opening and Closing night galas. In our festival wrap-up, Ron Swanson talks us through them.
