    In The Heights

    ★★★★

    A nice film.

    Lots of fun directing and creative moments.

    There's a bunch of obvious sequences which are great like "96,000" and "Tell Me Something I Don't Know" but I also enjoyed many of the smaller memories. Usnavi talking to Benny's dad in particular sticks out.

    That said, there are points where the film passes the line from heightened to cartoony, particularly with some of the acting choices and the special effects not displaying correctly. I also wish that there…

    ★★★★

    A fine film, though I do think it wraps up what's "really happening" a little too succinctly. That said, it does a good job throughout leaving us with big gaps and lots of confusion to help get into the right headspace.
