    To Live and Die in L.A.

    ★★★★½

    Drenched in 80s colors and sound, pumped full of insane car chases and over the top the top acting, and sent spiraling into madness as red blots and fires
    engulf the plot of the film. Thoroughly enjoyable and still has a lot to give on future rewatches.

    My cousin showed me propaganda lol. But some pretty good scenarios, the teacher one was the best by far.

    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.
