Gemini Man ★★★★★

"he's the mirror you don't want to look into"

obviously the next logical step in the evolution of sci-fi spy thrillers about technology that could be used to save humanity but that only an overfunded military has the capability to exploit is to make it an immersive deepfake using technology so advanced no theater can actually project it correctly...make a theme park ride feel real by slowing it down instead of making it bigger and louder, make cgi look real by making the real people look a little fake, make your insane premise grounded with a soulful actor learning how to process the way his government exploited both his weakness and his perception of masculinity, make a soldier devoid of conscience by giving him a loving home, and by the way, we should probably figure out what the actual fuck is going on with fatherhood in america
