Behind the Candelabra ★★★★½

I only gave this three stars the first time? What the fuck in my opinion. I do know that I really struggled with the surgical footage and Damon's descent, but the former is really quite fleeting and the latter is just testimony that you have to watch a film twice to know if it's any good, because the first time you're watching it against your expectations, rather than what the film's trying to do. Anyway, two great lead performances, a screenplay that somehow makes biopic contrivances work, some god-level directing and camerawork, and Rob Lowe stealing the show from it all.
