Poor Things

Poor Things ★★★½

I usually hate this like Amelie ass color palette (plus the CGI…), and while it’s the film’s weakest link in a way, I found it to be forgivable here cuz the kookiness comes with so much heart, humanity, and humor. It works. It’s a hoot. I think Lanthimos operates better in this tonal space than pure brutality (hated Killing, personally; I liked Dogtooth at the time but tbd on how it holds up). Plus, Emma Stone is so good as an infant-brained woman entering her horny freak bitch era — and she makes the delicate balance of shockingly rude while deeply compassionate work very well.
