    How does a huge film nerd Soderbergh make such a shitty Hitchcock movie?

    Foy and Pharoah give great performances but the story and circumstances become laughable.

    ★★★½

    Seemed like we wanted to be more epic, more characters but instead a slight film. Animation landscapes are awe-inspiring.

    The first time I came out of the theater and thought, "Gee I feel old. ... Gucci 👌

    Yeah Bo is off the ground running. Though comedic, there is real drama that can be gleaned whether you are 80 or an 8th grader. A coming of age story that I dont think will be dated because it is an evergreen theme.

    I loved the camera work especially the slow zoom outs, giving the audience room to laugh cringely, nervously, or genuinely.

    Fisher and Hamilton are splendid as daughter and father making the movie one of the best for 2018.
