    I think I found my least favorite a24 film. It doesn't really give anything besides some good looking scenes and very loud lowfy music.

    I also thought the sound mix was particularly bad. It sounded like the person who was on location recording sound didn't know what they were doing.

    The story itself doesn't really make me feel anything towards the characters or the situations they are in. It felt like they tried to make a Requiem for a Dream mixed with What's Eating Gilbert Grape in a way. It's such a weird combination.

    It's a testament to Hughes that he was able to have these very radical ideas and be…

    Gorgeous film, with a great moral that needs to be told, and yet the dialogue is the shortcoming.

    Honestly almost every joke felt super forced and out of place, especially with Awkwafina. She had this presence that was almost too extra and distracted every moment she was in it.

    I totally respect the huge Asian cast that put this together, and for the most part it was fine. Some voice actors had more experience and it shows.

    The Druun looked…
