    ★★★★½

    I wanted to go on an adventure. It was a simple wish. I’ve been couped up social distancing/self-quarantining for almost two weeks. I went to my Letterboxd accoutn and clicked on my watchlist—home to some 700-plus films—then sorted out the adventure ones that were streaming and then hit play. I didn’t read the description. I didn’t even know for sure it would be animated. I had absolutely no idea I was about to get Isle of Dogs meets Watership Down…

    Alright Letterboxd, let's talk. 3.2? Really?

    I'm sick of defending Newsies, so this will be the last time:

    We live in an age where we criticize Disney for playing it safe. For giving us cliche fan service films. The most popular films nowadays (and, one could argue, always) are sequels, franchises, reboots, and adaptations.

    Like a hazy 50s dream of understated homosexuality. Top shelf performances from all involved, cast & crew.

    ★★★★★

    My fifth viewing in just over 12 months.

    I can't think of another film that fills me with such emotion, that raises so many questions about race, masculinity, finding yourself, art, family, all while being legitimately laugh-out-loud funny, a little strange, and ceaselessly beautiful & entertaining.

    It's a perfect film. I wish I loved my hometown as much as Jimmie Fails & Joe Talbot do. In one word, the film is:

    goddamn-fucking-hella-inspiring-bruh.
