    “Have you worked out where you fit?”

    Do you remember the scene from Sicario where Benicio Del Toro's character says: "You will not survive here. You are not a wolf, and this is a land of wolves now."? Immediately after this, when given the opportunity to "become a wolf", Blunt's character is unable bring herself to cross that line. The land of wolves is not where she fits.

    A quiet, dramatic science fiction film that deals with themes of isolation, love, the lonely void of space, and what that does to people.

It’s been on my mind since I watched it and I’m glad that A24 has secured the distribution rights because now a fair amount of people will get to see it as well.

    ★★★½

    I live and breathe neon tinted violence. You put those in your film and I’m there. John Wick 3 had...great action, beautiful action. But Chapter 2 just set the bar...so high...that I left JW3 wanting and a bit tired if I’m being honest. But it’s still a solid action film.

    ★★★★

    This was the EXACT film I needed when I was growing up and first figuring out my sexuality. I watched so many gay films when I was a teenager that were great, sure, but they all ended in death or heartbreak. After a while, it starts to shape your perception of yourself. I needed this, an amazing story filled with heart and humor, and most importantly a happy ending. My whole theater cheered at the end, it was an incredible experience. 

    In the words of Jennifer Lawrence: “Gay Rights!”
