    This is a masterpiece, and I will take ANY excuse to re-watch it. Well, to be fair, I don't actually need an excuse. But I had one this time: I was working on a video essay about it that you should watch.

    I mean, is Sorkin actually capable of writing subpar dialogue? I don't think so. Over 2 hours of runtime, most of it people talking in rooms, and it flies by like it's nothing.

It takes existing footage and arranges it in a specific order. It doesn't attempt to explore the reasoning. It doesn't attempt to uncover something you can't already learn from a simple Google search. It doesn't give it any kind of perspective. All it…

    OK, so first of all, Willem Dafoe is great in this.
    Second, the color palette and the way Sean Baker makes the ugliness of the world look almost whimsical is also great from the aesthetic perspective.

    But...

    Did I watch the same movie everyone else did? Because, apparently, everyone watched some magical, wonderful, best movie of the year about "real people" and "real childhood". I watched a movie about some the most obnoxious kids and adults/parents I've ever seen on…
