Let’s face it: Tom Hooper’s Andrew Lloyd Webber musical megabomb is going to be the shame-buy of the season, as people get drunk and order it in the middle of the night, and then have to arrange Zoom viewing parties and backyard projections in a doomed attempt to convince themselves it’s actually a cult classic rather than a garbled digital nightmare that drains the very life force from everyone who sits in front of it. Anyway, you do you. I’ll be over here watching the new Criterion Blu-ray of Jean-Pierre Melville’s brilliant French Resistance drama Army Of Shadows.
