When there are more social connections than can fit a single life.
Astonishingly well made: acting, view, moments.
When I left the cinema, I was left with the big question: what did this wanna tell me? That powerful white non-straight people can be just as abusive as their male straight counterparts? Mehr.
But I kept asking myself why I enjoyed watching TÁR so much, despite’s it’s over-the-top length. And it’s the small moments. Where it diverts expectations and tropes. Where it feels too real. Where it says a lot.
For me, that’s enough.
Compact. Concise. Unpretentious. Fun.
It's no intellectual masterpiece, it knows that. Vibes and visuals, no lectures. I prefer it when a film is so reduced in ambition but then reaches its full potential. And is a joy to watch. I take that over half-hearted bombast that drools in its own sermon - looking at you TRIANGLE OF SADNESS, meh.
