    ★½

    Surprisingly uncompelling.

    ★★★★

    I have seen this movie probably more times than most movies, and for some reason what's always struck me is that there are no good white people in this movie. It's not immediately obvious, but basically every white person in this movie is morally fucked in some way.

    It's kind of great.

    Outside of that, the movie has this weird depth to it in terms of the execution of a perfect bank robbery, Christopher Plummer giving his best morally corrupt millionaire, Jodie Foster being a "magnificent cunt," and Denzel giving one of his better performances.

    There's this great moment where Gay Talese, in his respectable suit, sits down and tells the lady editor at the New Yorker his subject (Foos) is "not creepy."

    It's great for two reasons. One, it is immediately followed by Foos giving an incredibly lurid and detailed description of watching his aunt naked through a window and masturbating. And also because the crew goes back to talk to the editor and she says that Foos is a sociopath.

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

    There's this one satisfying scene where Rey and Ren Fight a bunch of red knight dudes and its so good.

    And then its like the movie realizes that they have to make like 16 sequels and can't have a satisfying or complete conclusion.
