    I'm seeing a lot of discourse on this film which I think is unfair, so here are my thoughts on Saturday Night Fever-

    Tony Moreno is not a good, uplifting character. He may appear as such at first- He's handsome, charming, down-on-his-luck and he's a beautiful dancer.

    This movie had way too much going on in it, and not much of it was particularly good. The hook of the film is interesting, the ongoing pregnancy was the best part for me, but everything else that was happening seemed mundane by comparison. Boring, even.

    The relationship between Alexia and her adoptive father figure had some good points to it, but ultimately felt strange and a little forced at times. Everything in between felt like filler.

    Titane climaxes when Alexia does, then we're subjected to an hour and a half refractory ending in gross dissatisfaction.

    Interesting method of execution here, I think there's a lot to take from this upon closer inspection. The subversion of the "love interest" was particularly well played.
