jules’s review published on Letterboxd:
the first film i’ve watched in about a year to give me full body chills.
i was going in as a taika fan who is used to his comedy and slapstick wit, expecting the entirety to be cartoonish, but what i got was so much better. yes, there were funny moments, but taika didn’t hold anything back, not once. everything felt like a laugh and then a consecutive punch to the gut, especially because it was real. this is the film we needed in this current climate.
also, best ending of the year. holy shit.
