Professional Kirsten Dunst fan.
Top 4 are previous month’s favourite first time watches.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I am absolutely in love with what Richard E Grant and Rosamund Pike are doing in this movie. I cannot say the same about the rest of it.
That being said - watching a (weirdly) sold out showing watch Barry Keoghan fuck a grave was one of my film highlights of 2023.
It’s a movie that’s more fun to watch than it is actually good.
I went into this with the lowest expectations as I honestly only bought these tickets because I love going to TIFF on opening night but I had a pleasant time.
I tend to overrate basically every movie I watch at TIFF because it's hard to separate the movie from the overall buzz. This movie is simple, the script isn't great, Scarlett sounds like a Charles Dickens character but overall I had a good time.
TIFF is back and the BVLGARI commercial is back and everything is right again.
