The Farewell ★★★★½

don’t wanna overhype this modest little film, but it cleared my skin, did my taxes, solved Brexit, fixed the Oscars, got the Starbucks guy to stop running, convinced Weezer to retire, killed Mitch McConnell & made me really hungry.

do wish they'd nix the very final shot, as i feel it undercuts the ending a bit, but the closer a movie is to perfect the more i have to quibble.
