    TÁR

    TÁR is about a lot of things, and it chooses to not dwell on any of them for very long. TÁR is about a woman with a trillion affairs who never has sex. TÁR is about the managerial class and alienation from craft. TÁR is about a woman with fifty houses.

    it’s not good folks!



    seriously. i don’t understand the high praise for this movie. it sucks. it feels like someone took two decent movies, cut out the parts that made each one good, and then mashed the remains together. 

    marvel fight scenes genuinely give me migraines. can’t wait to torture myself with part 2
