    A bit too much, but very funny.

    ★★★★½

    The best version of this film that could exist. The camera is so full of life that the characters truly pop off of the film. It was refreshing to see a total lack of cynicism despite the dire conditions we all continue to live in.

    Thoroughly entertaining and captivating. A tightly wound story that pays off in every way, especially after another watch hunting for easter eggs and hints. The immersion with the main character (Kaluuya is pretty good!) that happens both visually and narratively is extremely well done, and the moments of both eery fear and sharp terror are communicated amazingly well. Well deserved Oscar and exciting directorial debut!

    Maybe a little too sad for life. Wonderfully shot, a few metaphors fly over my head. Overall enjoyable cinematic experience, obviously a lot of thought put into this despite the Book of Job bashing over your head.
