Between this and Phantom Thread, 2017 was the year that the humble mushroom finally got its moment in the spotlight.
Basically the civil war version of The Bachelor.
Moondog is just pretty much just an annoying cunt, right?
Most of this film just gave me uncomfortable flashbacks to late nights that turned into early mornings walking the beach back home completely twisted and bumping into early morning risers and old people looking at me with disgust.
I loved Spring Breakers, and this is sort of the uplifting opposite twin to that film, but the two stars here are solely for Jonah Hill's ridiculous accent.
How in God's name did this film manage to do that!? In the first ten minutes I had heavy reservations, and by the end I was a blubbering joyful mess, and it was all done so economically and so... humbly. There was nothing here that didn't serve the characters or the story.
Lakeith Stanfield, Rami Malik, Stephanie Beatriz... Cool to see some faces that have become very familiar in the years since, but let's not kid ourselves, this is Brie Larson's show, and she is a fucking powerhouse in this.
