    ★★

    The longest 97 minute film I’ve ever seen. Never thought it would end. 

    As everyone else has said, the 2D animation is excellent and I didn’t hate the music choices. Other than that, I was utterly unimpressed.

    ★★★½

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m very accepting of a non-linear story. But when it’s done in this fashion, I simply cannot accept. At 105 minutes into the film I was informed that it was jumping all over the place the entire time. Again, I’m okay with that...just do it better please. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 

    Deserves a re-watch now - which may result in a 4 star rating as the film itself is beautiful, the characters are lovable, and the music is charming.

    I was afraid this film would not live up to the hype that surrounds it.
    I am so glad I was wrong.

    From the beautiful wide-angle shot of Jack and Ally sitting outside of the Super A Foods convenience store, to the final close-up as we are forced to stare into Ally's eyes...This film is a masterpiece. 

    Bradley Cooper's directoral debut left no room for disappointment. I can't wait to see more.

    If I didn't fall in love with Lady…

    ★★★★½

    “For you, every hour is the darkest hour.”


    This was everything unexpected and more. 


    An undeniably haunting account of the deterioration of the world with a deep religious backbone...All being delivered by Ethan Hawk’s award-deserving performance. 

    90% of the movie I felt as if I was witnessing a soul in limbo, taking notice of the sins of the world, understanding, & moving forward by exposing the deterioration that came from within. 

    A24 does it again.
