    ★★★★

    i hadn't watched a period drama in a long time so i really wanted this to be good, and it was. it *actually* captures the cultural atmosphere of fin de siecle Paris, the ambivalence between sexual ambiguity and rigid gender constructions. but most importantly, it's a wonderful and necessary portrait of an important female writer, and there's simply so much joy in watching collete (played by knightley in what has got to be one of her best performances) find herself.

    ★★★½

    i never expected to enjoy this so much. i was never into the transformers franchise, so i didn't really care for the overarching narrative, but as soon as Bumblebee lost his speech abilities and we were introduced to the smiths-obsessed hailee steinfeld, i was on board. sure, the premise is simple and it's been done a thousand times before (there are scenes that directly rip off Wall-E, but I was cool with that), but it has a true heart and i can admire that. i don't know if i'll ever see another transformers movie again, but i can't wait to see hailee steinfeld in more movies!

The film is narratively gratifying, coherent, and captivating while still paying respect to the original's uncompromisingly meditative nature that will leave some viewers confused.…
