person with shitty opinions
a like means i think something is great, no like =/= bad
Continue to be at least skeptical of Lanthimos as a Great Filmmaker (like The Favourite’s consideration of power, I thought a lot of the observations about gender and sexuality here to be pretty obvious) but this is pretty easily his funniest movie and is in general a great time. All the performances are great but I look forward to us discussing national treasure Mark Ruffalo.
i'm so fucking frustrated by this. i want so badly to love it. it should be my favorite movie of the year!! i's politically great, its really fresh and exciting, and its fucking weird in a way so few wide release movies are.
but i'm not there. without spoiling anything, i'll say the twist doesn't work for me other than on a pure structural "what a weird left turn" level. i also think detroit is criminally underwritten and cassius' arc…
