The Goldfinch ★★★½

Guess this is the equivalent of Vice for me this year. Didn’t hate it. Not perfect, structurally a mess, but I was into it. It feels like it tackles the subject in every angle possible, which obviously makes for a mess, which it is, but I personally think it pulled it off. While I’d say the scenes with Ansel definitely feel relatively empty, the scenes with young Theo completely make up for it. They feel full of heart. Roger’s cinematography is obviously the highlight.
