the scene where paddington watches the explorer's film for the first time, puts his face up against the screen, and transitions into darkest peru? invented cinema
I can't believe I just watched a movie that was (ahem) tailored to ALL my specific interests. It's as if Paul Thomas Anderson asked me to name everything that comprises my ideal movie, and he went ahead and fucking delivered... It also helps that Anderson is my favorite filmmaker (even when he makes films I don't particularly like all that much). My expectations were high, and he was able to effortlessly match and exceed them.
WHERE is Vicky Krieps' oscar campaign!! We need to get that shit mobilized, she deserves it infinitely more than some of the best actress frontrunners this year :/
