karsten’s review published on Letterboxd:
Will be talking about this more in my monthly watch vid and honestly maybe in it’s own vid someday so I won’t get TOO into it here.
My heart was beating basically the entire time. Fury Road and this are equally as thrilling. Fuck it, I said what I said! Fifty percent of that is because of how all your morals slowly go out the door and you lose yourself in this absolute mess of a relationship. The question “is this gonna end how I think it is?” in the back of my mind the entire time and eventually getting hit with a fade-to-black that holds the cockiness of a mic drop. The other fifty percent of the heartbeats came from me trying to make out as much french as I could. Ethan Hawke’s haircut could’ve been less shitty but this was not what I was expecting in the best way.
It’s come to my attention that my heart is beating at ALL TIMES??
