    ★★½

    This movie was alright, I suppose. Even though there were some relatable scenarios, the movie failed to make me connect to them or be particularly interested in the lives of any of the characters. Usually, time isn't a construct with good or enjoyable movies, but I felt every single minute with this one. It felt like a 3-hour movie. There was the rare funny moment, but I can't tell how much of my response is overinflated due to just wanting the movie to make me feel something other than the slow ticking of time.

    I didn't think I was going to enjoy this movie, based on seeing Ryan Gosling in Blue Valentine. I thought this'd largely be hype.

    The movie ended up breaking me and putting me back together in one of the best ways. I love what this movie did to my state of mind. The visuals were magnificent throughout; the attention to detail and the way the colors flew throughout the movie, and how the actors clothes contrasted and complimented their backgrounds…
