How do you explain the world of tomorrow to a child? Can you? Is it even possible?
I don’t know.
Surprisingly heart wrenching, reflective, and pensive, especially near the end. Though, whoever said you don’t feel the 3.5 hours is wrong. Some conversations felt too long, and I was so exhausted near the end that I didn’t catch the last half-hour my first time around (which is a shame, because the last half-hour is quite excellent). Still, the film’s very thematically cohesive and impactful, extremely well acted, and you get used to the facial technology. The soundtrack’s also a BOP
I always kinda knew Adam Sandler was a good actor but his performance in this blew me away. The character’s an awful person but he plays it so convincingly, and with the right amount of humanity to make Howie identifiable but not sympathetic.
Everything else about the movie is near perfect, too. I don’t know how you can make anything that’s more anxiety-inducing, but Good Time exists, so I guess I should watch that soon.
