me finishing this: what if my whole life is a tv show too and i dont know about it
me 2 seconds later, realizing that if my life was a tv show it would get cancelled after the first season: actually i’m ok
still hesitating with 4 stars bc of dicaprio’s outstanding performance, which was absolutely mindblowing.
this was really hard to watch, plot-wise, and i hated the majority of it. not because it was badly written or badly shot but because the whole time watching you just want the events of the movie to stop. stories of addiction are never pretty and this film didn’t shy away from showing the ugliness of how addicts are born and undone.
