    One of the most beautiful films I’ve ever seen. It’s pretty amazing to see Barry Jenkins be able to turn something small in its scale, into something big and personal. Almost anyone can relate to this story, as it’s biggest take is being able to identify yourself for who you really are.

    ★★½

    The anticipated sequel for The Shining is underwhelming. It’s an overly long film that tries so hard to add the atmosphere of Kubrick’s film, while also mixing in the fantasy story of Doctor Sleep. This creates an odd vision, as both of those materials are polar opposites. 

    Flanagan does a decent job of trying to do justice to both. Some of the sequences were well made and executed in effective ways, but I’d rather of had it more of a kubrick sequel than this. 

    We went from Jack Torrance being a terrifying force of nature, to Rebecca Ferguson in a goofy top hat.
