It’s been 10 months since I wrote my last film review and to be honest, I wondered if I’d ever get back to writing about films again. The number of films I’ve watched has only increased over time but my desire to write about them seems to have faded. There was something, though, about Allied, which was so powerful that I immediately felt the urge to take my laptop out and start typing. I’m writing this sitting on a plane from Beijing to London and for the first time in a while I’m truly feeling motivated to write a review.
Flicking through Air China’s selection of films on board my flight I was truly disappointed by the range of films on offer. There wasn’t a single one that I particularly wanted to watch. After I finished the book I brought with me, I knew I was going to have to watch at least one of these films to save myself from boredom so I opted for Allied. I’m a big fan of both Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard so I figured this would be, at least, passable. In the end, however, this film ended up touching my heart in a way that I didn’t expect at all.
