    I haven't even seen the first one. But I picked up most of the inside jokes from the last one, and of course the new jokes hit hard audaciously.

    But, this film's story is really not that good. It's only redeeming values are that the jokes and dialogue are extremely self-aware and honest.

    Some A24 prep before I see Hereditary.

    Saoirse Ronan really nailed her role. It was beautiful, but ultimately I felt that this wasn't anything too exciting compared to other 2017 films.

    This is merely a really well directed, and acted, coming of age film. There was no exciting component to the plot that made it stand out compared to the likes of Get Out, Three Billboards, or Shape of Water.

    But it doesn't have to be - it's its own little film, and I'm happy with that.

    A rare experience where I suddenly feel so uncomfortable my conscience has oozed out of my body and now watches Lanthimos' films with my eyes closed for half the time.

    Not the least bit horrific, but incredibly disturbing, to say the least.
