    Bazzmatazz with another fascinating hit and dose of pure magic filmmaking. AUSTIN "real as a donut" BUTLER with an already iconic performance. Luhrmann was really in tune with & came readily equipped with his most Ken Russell'ish stuff ever in a couple of the live performance scenes early on. One of those scenes, involving a live gig at a baseball stadium, will be a contender for my scene of the year. Who knew Elvis was so punk? That scene just really…

    "It's the only look I got."

    That line says so much about so many things, and there's a reason it gets repeated twice. When you set your mind to something and will do anything to achieve it, no matter what it is, the best only allow themselves one look. For Maverick the character or for Tom Cruise the movie star, it's the only look they both have because they are the A1 absolute best at what they do. Being a…

    -Did you like Peter more than me?
    -No. No Michael. I loved you both the same.
    -But you were... different with me.
    -Was I? Well... maybe it was because Peter was such a sweet boy, you know? And you... you were more like me. And, I didn't want you to be. I didn't mean to be different.
    -Okay.

    S is the best father/son scene in movie history.

    ★★★★

    Jennifer Jason Leigh as Dorothy Parker doing the the same kind of voice thing she does in Hudsucker Proxy which, IS GREAT because it's just the cutest and best thing in the world and she really plays period so extremely well. She's SO great - and perpetually underrated. This & Hudsucker came out in the same year which is bonkers because she really worked TWO of the best performances of her fabulous career back to back. Pretty much all Alan Rudolph films are some form of sultry, and there's no better actress he could've put in this movie. Excellent screenplay.

    Subtlety is overrated. Funny is funny. Truth is truth.

    ★★★★

    After positive word of mouth from festival premieres, I’ve been looking forward to this for a while (like many others). After some delays, it’s evident Blumhouse knew what they had and waited for a prime release date because this is good. This should be a hit. Luckily was able to go to an early release, and it was packed and it plays wonderfully hype. It’s got laughs and some of the best and funniest line readings of the year by…
