  • Song to Song

    Song to Song

    ★★★★½

    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...…
