    Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

    ★★★★

    “And remember, lots of tiny movements. Jerk the steering wheel left and right.”

    Near-perfectly nails the key tenets of the Hellzapoppin’ school of comedy: explain nothing, break as many laws of reality as possible, and hit the audience with so many jokes it doesn’t matter if some of them bomb. Makes for a very weird “middle American joblessness odyssey” double feature with Nomadland, that’s for sure.

    I don’t care how many Marvel movies she does; god bless Chloe Zhao for making a full-blown neorealist drama on a major studio’s dime. Beautiful, deeply observational filmmaking that rarely if ever feels the need to dictate your emotions to you.
