14k vs 12k Review request

Hi, could someone review my game please? Thanks! I was Black in the game:

Not a full review, but…

Most of the game comes down to L16 back on move 35. That kind of cut can only be done with a lot of strong stones nearby. The attempt strengthened white and weakened black, and as a result, white was able to take a lot of points to the left, basically free. A better move would be basically anything else. If you are concerned about your stones on the top left, just jump to the center, J14 or so.

Also, late in the game, white’s bottom group was killable, although white still would have been ahead. After Q1, L1 N1 O1 O2 K1 kills. This shape comes up pretty often.
