Zola ★★½

I feel like this had all the pieces to a movie that I should have liked but when it ended I just kind of felt nothing. I mean it had the film grain and the neon lights which is usually enough to get me but there were some weird moments that felt almost too stylized? Or not enough? It just didn’t feel consistent.

And I just didn’t feel like it was saying much. I’m sure the story was told well and was interesting in the Twitter thread but as a movie I just don’t think the story flowed well. The humor didn’t work at all. Riley Keough is talented but she was mostly annoying here and not in a fun, interesting way. I don’t know. It just felt like something that should have worked but I made no impact on me.
