    personally, i think women should just be allowed to steal whatever they want without the consequence of going to prison

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

    an ambitious film, but you don't get much out of it. it flirts with being profound, but isn't really, just dresses up so. it milks the issue it so desperately wants to air out. next time, hollywood, don't be a pussy and just kill the man!!!!!!!

    it's definitely fun, thoughβ€” i'll give it that. it's got solid casting too. bo burnham should just play all male roles. in every movie. from now until forever

  • Beautiful Boy

    Beautiful Boy

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    the plot lacked substance whilst simultaneously shoving in as many scenes depicting substance abuse as possible. i understand the cyclical nature of drug addiction but good god was it exhaustive β€” which i suppose could be the point?

    a film undoubtedly salvaged by timothee's stellar performance: there was never a moment on-screen wherein he was present and my eyes were not on him, tim was as magnetic as ever, almost excruciatingly so. that motherfucker is truly a Beautiful Boy if…

    i know this movie gets a lot of shit about its lack of substance, which i do agree with, but as a filipino myself, i think it was so empowering to see this little, local film of ours get international traction because a streaming service like netflix gave us a chance. for those in the younger generation like myself, i get hope from this that perhaps as a country we can start moving away from those cheesy money-trap blockbusters to…

    the whole gimmick of the movie is that it's beautiful

  • Marie Antoinette

    Marie Antoinette

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    just for future reference, it's incredibly vital that i one day run, drunk, through the gardens of my palace grounds with my friends, as we wait for the sun to rise

  • Les MisΓ©rables

    yet another movie about white people and their white people problems... the victorious remake was better
