    You Were Never Really Here

    ★★★½

    The story is a fever dream of sorts. It's actually straightforward, but the film's style and score left me disoriented. Yes, I read the Wikipedia plot summary afterwards to make sure I "got" it all. I did. It's about the visceral experience more than anything else. If there's more to it than that, then this film is way too smart for me.

    It's not that Wes Anderson repeats himself. It's that sometimes he doesn't repeat himself well.

    Is something wrong with my TV? It's all blue, then orange, then grainy, then ultra clean. Oh wait, nevermind. I'm watching a Soderbergh film. A very good one mind you, but definitely held back a bit by some overt soapboxing.

    I kept waiting for the hysterical chant of, "ANIMAL! ANIMAL! ANIMAL!" at the end.
