    first time in so, so long that i'm sitting down to watch a special and i'm so GLAD i chose this one on this random friday night.

    right from the get-go i knew it was going to be an intimate show because of how he said he wanted the audience to feel like family and i loved the fact that i got exactly that almost immediately.

    jerrod, man. I LOVE YOU.

    I know how mad you're going to get, but believe it or not, this was my first watch.

    I just want to say that Damien Chazelle is a freaking gem. The amount of effort that this guy and his entire crew put into the films they make should NEVER go unnoticed.

    I loved this a lot.

    "pretty as a picture."

    so good.

    the technicality of this film, the slow tracking shots, the clear Bergman influences done in their own unique way. it's insane how these alone make this film already so great. but of course, it's a robert eggers film, so there's MUCH more that adds to the greatness.

    ROBERT PATTINSON AND WILLEM DAFOE. incredible performances. the way they morphed into their roles and i could hardly recognize them because of how different these roles were…
