    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★★

    With the youthful energy of Reprise and the vulnerability of Oslo August 31st, Joachim Trier has crafted The Worst Person in the World: an astounding conclusion to his Oslo trilogy. This film is a pure triumph from start to finish, with a revelatory lead performance from Renate Reinsve that moves, charms, and breaks your heart in equal measure. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more achingly personal and tender film this year. It’s easily a new favorite of mine and I cannot wait to watch it again!

    Julia Ducournau subverts any sort of expectations you may have walking into the next feature from the filmmaker behind Raw as she crafts a transgressive masterpiece that’s disarmingly sweet and actually pretty damn hilarious. it’s also a film that operates on levels much more profound, emotionally resonant & less shock-valuey than i ever could’ve imagined. as Ducournau is seemingly less concerned with continually ramping up the gore and more interested in building this genuinely moving tale of identity & love. Agathe Rouselle is unforgettable and Vincent Lindon is shockingly tender. let Julia Ducournau make whatever the hell she wants to do next because this is just fucking unreal!!

    Conversations with Friends

    ★★

    Everything that made Normal People such a compelling and emotionally incisive series is completely lacking in Conversations with Friends: a meandering, bland, and overlong adaptation. One that stumbles from one mundane plot point to the next with awkward writing and lead actors that have no chemistry whatsoever. I do think it has brief moments of greatness but those are all bogged down when most of the twelve half-hour episodes are filled with dull conversations and unsexy sex scenes. Maybe I was just expecting a bit too much from this because I found it to be a massive bore.
