I try so hard to find the good in things that I’ll rarely rate a movie 1 star.

    1) Not Baz Luhrmann making me bawl my eyes out IN THE FRONT ROW OF A CINEMA?! Fuck you, Baz 😭

    2) Like most people, when I first heard that Austin Butler had been cast by the inimitable Elvis Presley, I thought “nah, that won’t work; he looks nothing like him.” Well, I could not have been more wrong.

    1) Ugh. Kill me. I was fully prepared for this to just be Oscar bait. I did not expect it to feel like a punch in the chest 😭

    2) This film is shot so cleanly and with such clarity, which is in complete juxtaposition with the lead character’s state of mind. It has such a simplistic feel to its framing, and it feels so necessary because the story is so stressful to witness. So hard…
