    I wanna know more about everything and everyone—wish this movie could’ve been made into three so we could get to know the characters better and feel the stakes more. Wakanda is sewww fkn cool.

    I broke down a couple times just watching Steve Carell try to take a breath without falling apart. It’s painful to watch him grieve my god. He, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne are such a delightful trio, and they navigate the tone so expertly that even in the writing's weaker moments they keep the integrity of the story together. All their little reunion moments at the beginning, where they recognize each other "after all these years", are such good old fashioned movie fun. They should all have been part of the awards conversation last year!

    Such a great premise but I didn't totally buy the series of interactions that leads her to being admitted to the institution, and then I feel the movie loses its tension when it lets us in on whether or not she's really insane. I think Soderbergh does make the more interesting choice, but still.
