The French Dispatch

The French Dispatch ★½

Such a pain in the ass to sit through. The dialogue is shitty and overly philosophical to a fault, making it dull and so so boring. An hour and 47 minutes passed like a year. 

“Just make it sound like you wrote it that way on purpose” is exactly what this movie is. Anderson tried to do SOMETHING but it’s totally unclear what he was doing or why this movie was even created except to spew some fake ass artsy droll. Too much of a reliance on dialogue in this movie — would’ve done much better as a book or something idfk just not a visual medium
