DANIEL’s review published on Letterboxd:
here’s a movie where I can appreciate the craftsmanship and aesthetic of the cinematography but, well, I don’t like kids, I don’t like movies about kids, at all, and I don’t find the scampish misadventures of children heartwarming, charming, or relatable, or any of that fucking bullshit people desperately pretend their annoying miniature scream-sacks are. I just don’t particularly care for kids or tv shows and movies about kids. it always leaves me utterly cold, feeling like I haven’t particularly watched anything at all. so that’s my review, and will probably continue to be my review any time the collab watches something child-centric. it’s a good looking movie for 1932, left zero real impression. if you ask me tomorrow what happened in this movie I would say something along the lines of “I dunno, fuckin...some kids did some shit , I guess” and then start talking about Cyberpunk 2077 instead.
