I am going to give this another shot, but for now I will live in 'The Matrix is a standalone film' reality. Don't wake me.
May need to sit with this for a little while. It was emotional, action-packed, and endlessly entertaining. At the same time it felt a little overstuffed and could have been split into two films.

We went looking for a crime and what we find instead is a lot of heart.
The Mole Agent gives us unprecedented access inside a nursing home to determine if the staff is negligent or abusive.

'Minari' is a touching look at family, hope, and the American Dream.
Every scene is beautifully shot, transforming even an industrial setting into art. Lee Isaac Chung's direction is patient, unafraid to let us sit with the characters - it provides a more personal sense of the situation that would be lost if handled differently.
The cast is impeccable from top to bottom. Steven Yeun is fantastic and Youn Yuh-jung is delightful.
(Going to re-watch in coming days when less tired. Rating may change).
