I liked it slightly more than Landline but after seeing them both I can firmly conclude that Gillian Robespierre films have characters with very basic problems. And what hurts her movies more is she doesn't present these problems in a way that I can remotely care about their impact. It also didn't help this film that two TV shows I've watched recently have handled abortion in by far the best way imaginable.
Couldn't get enough Charlize Theron in this. I could just watch her smoke and drink in a neon lit room for hours and be entertained. (loved the color palettes!) Then she walks out wearing the most fashionable outfits with her striking blonde hair and kicks ass! It's cinematic and it's beautiful. However, the plot kept taking me out of it. Too much spy shit with all the backstabbing.
Now this right here is my shit! This will probably get to become one of my favourite movies of all time. I'm already eager to see it again and get what i missed from this first viewing.
Yes, the narrative is confusing, but that added so much to it, I dont think i would have loved it this much if it had a straight forward narrative. it really let me concentrate on watching these insane and weird characters.
I loved it!
