Review of Widows
Very dark thriller - dark in both senses of the word, because much of what happens on the screen is really murky. It has a complex plot - the trailer makes it look like a regular heist movie, but it's actually much more complicated, with a lot of insight into Chicago politics, sexual politics, and lots more. There were some elements that I needed to go over to make sure I understood them, and one or two that I'm still not sure I followed. Hard to convey much of this without spoilers, but it's definitely worth seeing.
Watched at the Arthouse Cinema in Crouch End - nice comfortable cinema, but so cold!
