    Finally got round to watching this (trapped on a plane with limited choices), and honestly after all the fanfare I was expecting… I don’t know, a coherent film? Like I get it’s not for me, I’ve been putting it off for that reason. And I get it has Something To Say, but honestly, it was just a really poor plot, plastic characters (huh huh) apart from America Ferrera, and generally just made no sense as a film.

    Fuck me it’s worse than I remembered. Only film I’ve ever walked out of. Lasted 8 minutes this time. How this got a sequel…

    Surprisingly good after the not great Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Deffo return to form for KS and the best View Askew film since Dogma, probably. Great end to Smiths trilogy.

    Any film which opens with a long lingering shot of Scarlett Johanssons bare arse instantly gets 5 stars from me. 
      
    No, seriously, a beautiful film about loneliness, culture shock, and making a non-romantic connection with someone. Sophia Coppola really does do sad rich girl stories amazingly well.
