    Vastly superior to Hulu’s Fyre doc. What a colossal asshole McFarland is, but I’d be lying if I said I felt bad for a single attendee.

    ★★★½

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

    The movie seems to sag and plateau once they get together. The John Legend bits were brutal. BRUTAL. 

    There was more talking out of song than I expected. 

    Umbrellas of Cherbourg it is not. That being said, I liked it.

    The final 20 or so minutes are fantastic. Admittedly, I'm a sucker for romance, and Emma Stone.

    PS - Emma Stone ending up with Tom Everett Scott over Ryan Gosling makes this a horror movie, right?

    ★★★½

    My aesthetic: Nicole Kidman smoking a cigarette, watering the plants in the dark.
