idk man i just think movies are neat
BEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR FIGHT ME
“In another life, I would love to do laundry and taxes with you.”
honestly, what a mind blowing experience. Daniels (as usual) master the balance of weird, comical whimsy with a compelling and tender narrative that will punch you in the gut right when you least expect it. I went through every possible emotion watching this film, but above all it was an adrenaline pumping blast - especially for such a long runtime, it remains consistently entertaining, surprising, and off the walls.
I hope this movie exists in every alternate universe.
Full review coming soon!!
TIFF 21 - Film #1
I’m in the minority here, but this film was just…fine? As a huge fan of Sciamma’s Portrait of a Lady on Fire I was certain I would adore this, but it just wasn’t for me. I will give it props for being a beautifully fresh idea, and the performances from the young actresses were far better than I expected, but for a surprisingly short run time I was shocked to feel like this film dragged on forever.
It’s likely that this will resonate deeply with the select audience it was made for, but it’s a miss for me.
