    ★★★★½

    Doing this as part of a Chalamet retrospective and damn if it isn’t incredible how much he sinks into the young Casey Affleck character with his brief screen time. 

    As a whole this continues to grow on me as a great hybrid of hard sci-if and the humane, and probably my favorite Zimmer score for a Nolan picture.

    This improved for me on a rewatch even though I hate how much the film punishes Simon for being the victim of both blackmail and a cruel public outing. Really the only reason to have Simon's friends get so mad at him is to make him completely alone for the humiliating cafeteria scene.

    Ultimately, the highs of this outweigh that minor gripe I have because of how much this gets right. I really think Nick Robinson passes well as a…
