'The Whale' showtimes in London
Important Notice about Showtimes
After six years on the cinema scene, we’re sad to announce that WeLoveCinema will stop delivering showtimes and cease updating from Friday 4 August, 2023.
This wasn’t an easy decision, but we’re incredibly proud of what we achieved in that time, and are grateful for the experiences and opportunities that came our way.
Darren Aronofsky has delivered a tender black comedy of the soul, a grappling with the human capacity for empathy shot through with a real literary heart.
The Whale film review

We Love Cinema
The writing clunks; the narrative is contrived and unconvincing and the whole film has a strange pass-agg body language, as if it is handling its own painful subject matter with kid gloves and asking us to do the same.
For a film that portrays a man in the throes of a very deliberate suicide-by-obesity, Darren Aronofsky’s schematically sentimental but undeniably effective The Whale works hard to avoid being morbid.
