    In The Heights

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Understandable criticism, but I loved it all the same. One of the cheapest aspects of the stage-to-screen adaptation was Usnavi's storytelling/narration. Surely there could have been a better way to show that on film other than essentially lying to the audience. I could see it working with a set on stage, but here it was just a cheap fake-out device.

    ★★★★

    More like Sound of Post-Hardcore tbh.

    Title jokes aside, it was a really good movie—even if it left some loose ends hanging. But not everything needs to be tied up in a neat little bow.
