    ★★★★

    These brothers have a vision. The soundtrack and the aesthetics alone are worth a watch. Pattinson also surprised me in the best way. It has some pacing issues and the story is really not that exciting but it succeeds with it's gritty, realistic approach and for the most part, I had a GOODTIME.

    Shoutout to the people next to me, who were talking trough the whole movie👏🏻 Besides that, I enjoyed "It" a lot. It's not that scary, but has a wonderful charm/humor and a ton of creepy moments, which are so well directed, that it keeps you entertained till the end.

    One of the best movies this year. Denis Villeneuve is such a genius, now I am even more excited for his Blade Runner sequel.

    The last hour is something truly special: very hard to watch and at the same time brilliantly fascinating. There is only one way to interpret all this , mothers! metaphors are well thought out and executed but also not very subtle. Maybe Arronofsky did go too far in one particular scene - I'm still not sure about that. All I know is that it gets you to think/talk about it and I fucking love that.
    Way too many close ups tho..
