Laurence Anyways ★★★½

I have such a complicated relationship with Dolan. I liked this, I could even sincerely enjoy some of his outbursts of style and flash, but the film suffers from being too bloated. I didn't see the point for the book stuff framing device and the abundance of slow-mos and subplots alienated me from the central love story which was truly moving and worthy of exploration. In spite of my gripes with several aspects of the film, there is enough beauty and emotion here to satisfy my needs.

Film 11/15 of my October Watchlist
