    Think I’d only seen clips of this one before, but wow is it good. Really creep and smart about why everything happens. Some of those final images are really chilling. Only thing that didn’t really work was the romance—or at least I didn’t really care about it. That not really the point though, but it is the only thing that keeps his from being perfect.

    Seen with fantastic live accompaniment at the Alamo. Not sure this needed a 4K restoration as it maybe takes some of the surreality out if the production design, but this is still really strange and unnerving while showing little to no signs of age.

    Some of the action scenes are mind-numbingly visceral, but the only real argument for HFR is the way the pendant on Mary’s necklace dangles enticingly over her suprasternal notch.

    There was a section where they tried to pass off Terranea as Hawaii that had me SCREAMING, but this was otherwise a near-perfect rom-com. I didn’t really buy the chemistry at first, but when they turn on the sex appeal it works. Totally get why this won the audience award. I was so invested by the end. This would be decent for Netflix considering its current rom-com obsession, but I’d love to pay to see this in a theater with a big crowd.
