Minari ★★★★

More emotionally difficult and tonally varied than I expected? I was left with some questions and things that felt under-resolved, but still admire the artistry of it and the degree to which it makes the personal aspects of the story feel nuanced and complicated. Sometimes felt the subplots disconnect from each other, but they're all compelling enough on their own and the acting all feels so genuine. Basically it didn't hold my hand narratively as much as I was expecting, and that felt unsettling or even stressful sometimes but I respect it also.

Also, amazing musical score, but it was underused in my opinion!
