Shoplifters

Shoplifters ★★★★★

Elements of Florida Project and Parasite - especially with familial dynamics, class struggle, and living in poverty - while still being a completely independent story from the two.

I love the idea of exploring what actually makes up a family, and the viewer is let in on this theme from a variety of perspectives. Every detail felt so thought out; the story telling was spread out beautifully to where you are finding out new information about relationships and characters from start to finish. It also has a healthy dose of humor, joy, bliss, tragedy and heartache. *And* it’s absolutely breathtaking visually. Possibly one of my favorite movies to date.
