Annette ★★½

Starts off with an incredible one-take musical sequence but loses steam really quickly. Adam Driver's extremely long stand-up comedy sequences just don't really work for me. The message, for how convoluted the film is, is extremely simple and not subtle. The quality of each musical numbers vary greatly from really wonderful opera tracks to dumbass unnatural dialogue singinf. Bit of a hit-or-miss situation.

Still, in some strange way, I was invested and wanted to see how things played out. Holy Motors is still better though.
