Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

The two things that stood out to me: what would the atmosphere of this movie have been like if it didn’t have the comedy aspect to it? The whole story was a hard pill to swallow from beginning to end, and it would have been 10x more jarring without the humor. The second, which also goes towards atmosphere, is the poppy and ironic soundtrack which was able to delivery poignant lyrics with straight pop instrumentals and make the viewer feel all sorts of way, much like the movie itself.
