    Now I was excited to see this because Chinonye Chukwu’s last movie Clemency blew my tiny little mind. But what a bummer to see how little play this is getting on here. I think this is one of the best movies of the year. But I wanna try and refrain from simply calling it “powerful” because of the story being told. This isn’t Oscar bait or trauma porn. This is a stunningly crafted movie. It roots every scene and every…

    “I tried to stand up for my blood. My blood won’t let me stand up.”

    One of the most immediately involving experiences I’ve had in a while. To the point where it didn’t feel like a movie at times. I was wrestling up thoughts of my own. It inserted me back to my own experiences in hospitals. But as for that immediacy I spoke of. You could say a lot about the amount of close ups, and the in the…

    One of the sickest, most fluid displays of visual language (that shot of the bright white sun remains a swift beauty.

    The immediate chaos this brings is unmatched. I think it’s why I think of and crave it often. That and the hugely impactful shot selection (the overhead shot when she flys into the tub, the “please” moment from the barrel of a shotgun, Ving Rhames replacing the H in “HELP ALIVE INSIDE”, and of course one of the better final shots I’ve ever seen, the closeup of Sarah Polley on the boat with the sunlight hitting her hair, looking back…

    The way the family rallies around olive at the end is one of the most beautiful things ever. Every character in this movie is vulnerable and I really really appreciate that. There's so many great moments(Steve Carells eyes in the gas station, Alan Arkin consoling his son, Abigail running to the car at the end) but nothing screams "I love my family" more than Greg Kinnear on a moped

    Toni Collette deserves a super Oscar for this performance, I mean cot damn she put it all on the line. I feel like such a nerd right now. My friends are using words like "psychological" and "thrilling" to describe this film. Meanwhile, I had a deeply horrifying experience. I was sincerely uncomfortable for most of the run time. That being said, I really wanna see it again. Based off the first viewing, I can't think of a film that scared me more
