    Is my favorite film of all time losing it's hold on me?


    If it is, I have no idea how to deal with that. I got home from my screening of Moonrise Kingdom (I saw it in a theater for the first time in 5 years) and just broke down into full ugly tears.

    ★★★

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

    This is a movie about a group of people coming together because of their shared hatred of Johnny Depp and climaxes with each of them taking turns stabbing him violently so I don't see how anyone couldn't like it
