    My favorite movie of the year. The “philosophical” impetus to experiment with alcohol in the way these middle aged men do is fitting and more nuanced than I originally gave the film and Thomas Vinterberg credit for because it’s so spurious. People drink for less compelling reasons. That is the allure of alcohol

    The acting is fantastic and the film maintains a neutral stance on alcohol and alcoholism.

    A really fascinating movie in and of itself, but also to have watched during a global pandemic. The naive old couple’s nostalgia for wartime austerity and their blind allegiance to the govt rings true here in the US when faced with an existential threat. There is scapegoating, confusion, chaos, exceptionalism, toxic positivity and most of all, a denial that reality has profoundly changed. Really cool animation style and soundtrack. So weird that it’s seemingly an animation for kids.

    Like “Survivor” but the against the cruel backdrop of late capitalism that unsurprisingly stigmatizes mental illness
