    It was fine. I'm glad I saw it. It's weird watching something and having to like... put yourself in the mindset of seeing its innovations for the first time. I really liked it, but I'm so familiar with its cultural beats I think I didn't get the full experience.

    ★★★★½

    Well this was not at all what I was expecting. The trailer did not even hint at the story that actually mattered. While it left me frustrated for the characters, I was pleased at how strongly I felt towards (and against) them.

    Where Hands Touch

    ★★

    Doesn't justify its existence for me. Weird undercurrent of "mixed race people will save the world" that felt very anti-black. Strong performances wasted on an ill-advised project.

    Green Book

    ★★

    White people's new favourite race movie. The Help but for bromances. The only redeeming quality is the spectacular performances by Viggo and Mahershala. It's going to win every award.
