"Black Mountain Poets", directed by Jamie Adams

Movie, 2015

Low key love story among a group of poets on a retreat in the rainy greenery of Wales. While this is a piece which works well enough and delivers some good moments, there’s also something uneasy in the satire, which feels a little self-referential and apologetic. Lo-fi attacks low achievement; indie attacking independent, but with no incisive comment or defence. For all this, and for some fairly limited characterisations here and there, this is a film to enjoy, in the main.
