    Some real moments of splendid filmmaking here. I wish I could watch the first and then then second back to back. They should be one film.

    Two dudes actually wore suits in my showing. Everyone cheered when the Nicole Kidman AMC thing came on.

    So full of heart and such an incredible story. Add it to the list of movies where Gael García Bernal has sex in car!

    This shit is so fire. Like wtf it has lines like “Bheem is not a sacrificial lamb. He’s a burning volcano.” Who tf even thinks to write like that. Just sad they didn’t have the Telegu version on Netflix. 


    Edit: also I’m aware that this film is definitely some kind of
    propaganda but i uhhh DONT really understand the dynamics of it except for that “British = bad”… and like… i agree? Very willing to have my mind changed about this though! I just don’t want to presume to “get it” when I, in fact, do not.

  • Vice

    ★★

    Too long and not sure exactly what it’s trying to say except that Dick Cheney sucks and that Republicans suck. Amy Adams also pissed me off but Sam Rockwell and Steve Carell were so good in this. Maybe I just don’t get the hype. Is a very Adam McKay movie though— take that in whatever way you deem fit.


    The ending also ruined it completely.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I love that after all the fucking s&m shit he puts her through in this movie he gets confused when she wants anal. This movie is so morally ambiguous that it almost becomes melodramatic once over. What a confusing movie but also just so entertaining and politically interesting.

    I think I just kind of love everything Mike Leigh does. The dialogue is always fantastic and this one ends right when it needs to. Ruth Sheen eats up the screen, of course, and it was so good to be back in a theater with people laughing at a kind of movie I’ve only watched alone thus far. So contained yet also so truthful about the humanity.

    Brilliant. Like a hug with a punch to the stomach. And what an amazing soundtrack too!
