    Rachel Getting Married

    ★★★★½

    The year is 2008. You’re a filler guest at a $75k Hinduism-themed nondenominational wedding in Connecticut feat. the guy from TV on the Radio. Rachel’s getting married. Jonathan Demme is still alive. He’s trying a Dogme 95 thing. It works. Anne Hathaway even has the Karen cut, almost. You don’t yet know it, and the United States has already been through a lot, but this is as good as it’s going to get. It is all downhill from here.

    God damn, dude. Takes a minute to get there but by the third act this whole affair is Very Scary. I may have nightmares!

There isn’t even any fashion. What there is, is ridiculous accents and Phantom Thread pantomiming. Unimportant tax-based infodumping and pirouetting around a legacy enabled by fascist collaborazione. One of the more important moments of dialogue is literally “Can I ask you a question?” “You just did.” All just further evidence of the Netflixization of cinema and, subsequently, culture. Not even bad enough to be camp!
