    I would watch Jodorowsky wash dishes.

    ★★½

    This SHOULD have been the shark equivalent of Piranha. That's what it was in my brain even though I'd heard it got neutered down to a PG13 family summer movie. Even so, I didn't expect that neutering to completely screw up the script and pacing of this movie. Still fun in bursts, but a letdown.

    Absolutely believe the hype. I don't casually throw around the term Masterpiece, but this fits the bill and then some. The filmmaking feels both impeccably controlled and energetically spontaneous- dizzying, poetic, and meaningful in every frame. The story is both timely and classic, heartbreaking and hopeful. Jenkins infuses his beautiful images and complicated characters with more heart and understanding than most filmmakers could ever muster. Gorgeous to look at and intense to experience, this is one you definitely cannot miss.

    ★★★★

    Krasinski's first genre feature nails all the right beats, consistently and cleverly ratcheting up the tension. But what's more compelling is his heartfelt focus on the importance of family and our deepest fears that we can't always be there to protect them. His love for his wife and his for his craft are palpable in every frame, and I can't wait to see what he does next.
