    The Bridges of Madison County


    will have to mull a bit before deciding where i stand on the frame narrative (initial instinct is to wish most of it away, especially since the meryl/clint stuff is so good).

    admittedly, i haven't watched "that" much streep, but i don't think i've ever seen her lovelier.

    the extent to which eastwood's costuming here reminds me of my grandfather is a little disorienting

    "i don't want to need you, because i cant have you."

    lol way to hurt me, eastwood. way to hurt me.

    not a bad movie to put on if you need a good cry.

    even a "good" marvel movie is pretty damn dull

    clunky all around

    less fun than ragnarok

    t'challa lacks personality

    marvel fight sequences remain dogshit

    a lot of people will enjoy it, but i remain unconverted

    letitia wright might be the best part

    added a half star for hot bods

    it's self-indulgent
    it's porous
    it's slow
    and the poster art might not work

    but it's also lovely
    really lovely

    beautiful, with a strong ensemble cast
    rooney mara is particularly shining
    and gosling gives more a performance here than in LA LA LAND... so...

    i left the theater feeling lonely, sad, cleansed, and restored

    it's frustrating at times, but it's moving too

    not all of lubezki's flourishes work, but that's ok...
    could've done without that one shot of a donkey tho...…
