    ★★★★★

    I won't/can't even try to articulate anything intelligent about this movie but it impacted me in a way films rarely do. I physically cannot cry anymore due to being on about 400 mg of antidepressants (ayy) but the final sequence made me actually roll a tear. I had to go sit in the dark and just reflect for a while. mandatory viewing.

    extremely Fine. for a movie about violence it has surprisingly little tension due to how rote it all feels. none of the conflict has weight to me because of how easily every obstacle is bypassed. didn't hate it, didn't particularly not like it, just... Fine

    also come on guys, there's gotta be a better way to fuck on stairs

    tell me one, ONE personality trait any character in this movie has
