    I Care a Lot

    ★★★

    This is a roller coaster of a thriller comedy that I am not sure knows what it wants to be.

    For the last 16 years I have worked in the field of geriatric counseling. Elder abuse is a real and deplorable thing and needs to be addressed with more severe consequences. I thought this film would delve deeper into this issue. Also, there are so many holes in how this woman became a guardian that it did take me out…

    ★★★★★

    Whew! This is a cinematic achievement. It is not just a film but also a harrowing experience.

    The camera work and cinemaphotography are a major part of this film. You feel like you are right there. The long shots without edit in this movie are super impressive.

    It is not an easy film as it shows the brutality of WW I. It is intense and your blood pressure will change more than once.

    This film should be seen on a big screen. The sound and soundtrack enhance this experience.

    Brutal, sad, honest, and an experience you will not soon forget.

    Peace, it really is worth it.

    I am reacting on feelings here and I felt happy with this and I was smiling at the end.
    I have no idea if this is how the arc was originally intended or not. Certainly neither of the two earlier films in this trilogy could be ignored. Yet, I feel an honest effort was made to please old school Star Wars fans…
