    I found a lot to enjoy here - the cinematography, Stewart's performance, the isolated setting and simple plot were all great. But I also think going in knowing little about Diana beyond her tragic demise made this difficult to really invest in. I also am not sure about Greenwood's score here. Musically it was great but the tone was off for me.
    All of that being said, I thought this was a "biopic" done right! And even though I didn't have much knowledge going in, the film did a good job of explaining most of the necessary context. Anyways, time for some KFC!

    ★★★★★

    This movie restored my faith in movies and life. There is no "moment" in this movie designed to be classic. Instead it shows the monumental potential of daily life.
    Wally and Andre debate whether people must go to a symbolic destination like Mount Everest to be "woken up" and to be "truly alive". Wally argues a piece of art can be an Everest and I think he is right.

    this was good, but at the same time like I could've just read the title.
