What a picture
As Duncan, the Catton’s butler says, you do get lost. Truly had no idea where it was going. Not sure what it was trying to say — if anything — about class structure, but found this to be an enjoyable psychological thriller. Barry Keoghan is a true talent and I hope he doesn’t get stuck in these types of roles where he plays a little freak.

Where Shin Godzilla focused on the Japanese government’s ineffective approach to dealing with Godzilla, Minus One eschews any sort of bureaucracy altogether. Instead, the emotional heart of the film is that of the citizens of Tokyo and their collective efforts to defend themselves against the monster. And it nearly brought me to tears. Quite possibly the scariest Godzilla put to film so far, at least from the ones I’ve seen. This Godzilla’s wonton destruction and angers harkens back to the rampage of the original 1954 picture.
Absolutely beautifully animated movie with an equally as beautiful message. Please don’t let the title fool you. It’s not a weird movie about cannibalism or anything like that. It’s about friendship, experiencing life to the fullest as if each day is your last and the undeniable fact that you cannot live life alone. You do need people and believe it or not, they need you too. I cried my eyes out. A bigger gut punch than The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Your Name.
