    I dug this even as a thriller with Jim Carrey being aggressively gaslit for an hour

    Pretty strange experience watching this after watching the feature -- definitely noticeable improvements between the two, but this is able to accomplish a lot in its short runtime. Just like the feature, it's as strong at building character as it is at building that anxious atmosphere. Good stuff.

    I found it every bit as cutting, current, batshit hilarious, and real as the first. Laughed harder than I have since... well, since I watched the first one.

    i feel like your enjoyment of this hinges on how well you think it jumps between the first and second half, and for me, i think it worked. liked the second half more, but the first half definitely was impressive too. kelvin harrison jr was a big standout, liked lucas hedges and taylor russell a lot too. stunning, vibrant cinematography. the first half was really heart-wrenching to watch, and the second was just as emotional. Solid 8.
