Fjorkin Hel brüv! This is one of the most movies! I was genuinely so shaken by the performance that I believe Aleksander should be under surveillance after this. His rider? Bath salts! Seriously though, so much of this feels like you are looking one of the most powerfully unhinged men in history right in the eye, and it is truly shocking.

Simple on the surface but really explores some emotions that resonated with me, all the way from David to Jacob to G-Ma. Appreciated the multi-faceted approach to church. Three different styles of church all in the one film whilst not being a film about churches is something I ain’t seen befo. Paul was a really enjoyable character to watch, and the performance is just wild to think about. Really funny in parts, with the David Grandma dynamic. Also Emile just smashing that score to pieces to accompany the beautiful farm picz.
There was a lot of this that was stupid but you can't beat the sheer force of Nolan's stiff nips for cinema! He does action and sci-fi like few else. One of my favourite punchups ever. The music was facemelting and felt like a nice progression of his usual Zimmertown. Laughed for some reason when Kenneth Branagh came on screen but then he wiped that laughter right off my face! So good! Female character was pretty cringey and borderline Bond Girl one-dimensional, but absolutely loved the Brutalist Post-Soviet take on time travel sci-fi. Reckon I'll give it a rewatch for sure. Also R-Patts for James Bond!
