    ★★★½

    “…He’s white!”

    500 whip pans, zooms, and edits of Tom Hanks getting up and walking later

And that also lasts two hours.

    2019 Sundance Film Fest Film #4: 


    And to think just I was starting to get burnt out from this whole “Sundance while I work part time and go to school full time” thing, Monos comes out of nowhere to be something bigger than a simple “must see at Sundance” title. Monos feels like a fucking miracle, an achievement in capturing a true to life nightmare scenario through the lens of a fairy tale world. Monos seems like it could take place…
