    ★★★★

    While sometimes slightly thin, it still hits every single emotional beat thanks to a truly remarkable performance from Charlize and an earnest and wonderful Mackenzie Davis. Can't believe it took me so long to see this, but I am so glad I finally did.

    Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

    ★★★

    Of course I had to see it again. Still a masterpiece. The beautiful, powerful, enveloping sensation of first love and heartbreak. Timothée Chalamet is as good as it gets.

    Edited my angry, incoherent review.

    You just should not ever make a film where you're going to try and humanize racist, homophobic, violent, and abusive cops over the mother whose daughter was raped and murdered. THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is gross.

    The praise that this is getting is baffling to me. There are so many glaring faults in this film that have everything to do with how it's framed and presented. Just an overall epic misfire.

    It's really time to stop letting straight white men tell stories about race and sexual violence against women.
