Downsizing ★★★

Alexander Payne is one of those directors that has a unique vision and sometimes people don't like him. That's me. I didn't enjoy Sideways or About Schmidt. However, the first trailer for this caught my eye. I love the concept, but he took it beyond where it needed to go in my opinion. We don't have the clean ending that some hope for, but on my end, I wanted it to be actually a little more messy. There were some confusing plot points, some questionable racial ideas expressed and a lot of end of the world centric fondness. Ultimately this wasn't bad it just wasn't particularly good either.
