Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé ★★★★★

you know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation / always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper

the shortest 137 minutes of my life – exuberant, brilliant, electric beyond measure. beyoncé is breathtaking in her eye for precision and spectacle; every movement choreographed into oblivion, every moment bigger and brighter than the last. she has a fantastic eye for showcasing talent as well, both her own and that of others, and the whole show is a gorgeous celebration of myriad musical talents that coalesce into a joyous whole.

homecoming is an explosion of creative joy and it's wonderful to watch for that. there's a buoying sense of achievement and pride, made all the better by the sheer danceable force of beyoncé's music (good at all times, but absolutely overwhelming when she's got that much firepower behind her).
