Ridiculously gorgeous. Andrew Scott should be walking away with that Oscar, no question. Absurd snub.
A perfect, reality-bending, haunting exploration of time and love and the things that tear us apart—but bring us back together.
A stunning, sobering portrait of a woman who, time and time again, fights back against the narrow-sighted, prejudiced systems that govern our society. Teyana Taylor and Josiah Cross absolutely shine, and we should be hearing a lot more about them right now.
The same goes for A.V. Rockwell! What an amazing feature debut, and I really, really hope to see more from her in the future. So beautifully, quietly shot, capturing so much of the tension and turmoil, all against…
A bizarre mishmash of directing styles and a story that's obviously missing huge chunks of complexity and substance. The editing was out of control too. There are some flashes of brilliance and Zac is stellar, but this probably should have just been a four- or five-part documentary. Despite all its promise to not be another run-of-the-mill biopic, it plays out pretty much like one. Strong ending though.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The general premise is pretty solid and it touches on some important themes, but that's about it. Though I will say it kept me intrigued even if I couldn't take it seriously. And yeah, cool that we kind of experience the world as she does. I liked that idea a lot.
But man, the laughable, unrealistic dialogue and a lot of stiff acting and delivery just killed this for me. Not to mention the off-putting camera angles and film editing. Not a fan.
And Clayton's motive was suuuuuch a reach.
