    ★½

    Great cinematography by Arnaud Potier. And Elle Fanning is so good in one particular scene, it’s a shame it’s wasted in this movie.

    However, Nic PIzzolatto is really gonna have to bring it with "True Detective" season three, because I'm beginning to think he lucked out the first time around. (Btw, his "Jim Hammett" credit on this movie is, I suspect, a lazy marriage of James M. Cain and Dashiel Hammett, two writers he probably admires, but can't touch).

    Lastly, this movie is also proof that just because you can do a one-take sequence, doesn't mean your movie needs one, or earns it.

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    1) He won't get any credit for it, but Timo Tjahjanto does some really great, economical storytelling with those dialogue-free montage sequences.

    2) The most unexpected, but kinda perfect use of Low's "Murderer " ever.

    ★★★★

    Disney gave director David Lowery a bunch of money and let him make an intimate, character driven movie about the relationship between a boy and his dragon. And it's really good.
