    I really tried not to be biassed and to give this film a chance, but from the very beginning it was clear I was not gonna like this. Coda, in my eyes one of the most undeserved Best Picture winners of all time, is the definition of generic.

Whether as Johnny Cash in Walk the Line, Theodore in Her, Doc Sportello in Inherent Vice, Arthur Fleck in Joker or (in my eyes…
