    ★★★★

    Everyone say thank you Paul Thomas Anderson and Thom Yorke. 

    This gave my major Suspiria vibes so that’s always something to celebrate even though I may be in the only one who felt that. But this is really just a gluttonous display of pure talent here from the fantastic choreography to the brilliant direction by PTA. It’s a lot better than some of the feature length films I’ve seen this year so that should tell you something about how immense…

    Gonna try to keep this one a little short to prevent me from rambling on about how perfect this thing is but just know every positive thing I’m sure you’ve already heard about this is 110% true. It’s a full on masterpiece and I am absolutely comfortable calling it that…
