Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.

Film review — Searching

Did you spot the big clue to unravelling the mystery right at the start? I sure did, then forgot about it till the final act, which is actually a good sign for how engrossing the story is despite the desktop interface gimmick. The one big mark against, alas, is (not a spoiler, you won’t know what I mean until the end) its unfortunate treatment of mental illness as a deviant character trait; I thought we were over that by now. ★★★
