    The score and cinematography are perfect, and the last five minutes swell to a beautiful final shot...but everything else sort of fell flat for me.

    I could watch Colin Firth fighting off hoards of people for hours.

    My least favorite of the post-Tree of Life trilogy...but I'm not sure why. I still enjoyed how everything unfolded and circled back to itself, the cinematography was great (as always), but there seemed to be something missing. Maybe with time this will change, but it was a bit of a slog to get through.

    This is a hard one to recommend...but man did I enjoy it. It does an incredible job building mystery and suspense to an insane (and sometimes hard to watch) final 30 minutes. And nothing is exactly what it seems, which was so enjoyable and satisfying to work through. Not sure I agree with everything Aronofsky is saying here, but I can appreciate the ways in which he did. It was also gorgeous to watch, and the sound design was so…
