    ★★½

    Campy and wild and unhinged, this movie was a ton of fun to watch even though it was really pretty bad. Intentional b horror film with some insane moments, I’ll take it,

    I am speechless. From Stewart’s insane performance to Larrain’s impeccable narrative structure and direction, to the master Claire Mathon’s incredible cinematography and Greenwood’s monumental score - this film is firing on every cylinder. There is no criticism or thought I can give to this film that would knock it down, it demands our attention and my obsession time and time again, it can never be watched too many times. Best of the year hands down, and deserving of every Oscar…

    ★★½

    Marred with pacing issues, convenient and uninventive plot for plot’s sake, and an overall lack of imagination, the final Star Wars film hits a few great notes but doesn’t really add up to anything worth remembering.

    A solid first entry from Gyllenhaal and a great performance from Saarsgard and Buckley. Not without its problems, and the modern timeline was a bit lackluster. However the conversation it opens up on mother’s and the complicated relationship between mothers and children was a fascinating and refreshing perspective to have on film.
