Sundance 2022 Film #5
Finds a quirky mystical style all its own, filmmaking for the fun of it. Much needed. That being said, I'm thinking 60 minutes should be the new 90 minutes.
Travis Knight does the impossible and gives a beaten down, cynically driven franchise helmed by a toxic auteur for a decade a Spielbergian makeover which bleeds good vibes and joyous optimism. Lots of surprising virtuoso directing and boisterous creativity here in the same vein as Kubo, this is gonna be *huge*.
