Loved the first half an hour of the film but then it sadly lost momentum, for me. Would’ve liked more exploration of Judy becoming a badass rather than lingering on the unfunny townsfolk for an excruciating amount of time.
I loved the style of the music but in some parts it just didn’t fit what was happening on screen. And it might be argued that was the point. But because the score was so fantastic at the start I don’t know what happened in the montages.
Also the montages. What did they reveal? They had as much gusto as a makeover montage in a romcom. Again, perhaps the point? But I don’t want to be overly generous here. It didn’t sing to me. And I so wanted it to.
However, I will be looking out for Folkes’ next venture. I think she has something interesting to say.
