    The Last Days of Disco

    ★★★★½

    An epic comedy of degeneration and new beginnings; a movie so full of wit and kinetic energy, I dare you not to smile for a minute of its 2-hour runtime.

    Saw this in theaters with a Whit Stillman Q&A last night and I’m still reeling.. I don’t know if it was just the vibe of the screening, but this got insanely better the second time around—reminded me of the feelings I got during my first few rewatches of Mistress America. I doubt that I’ll keep this under five stars for long.

    ★★★★

    Scared the hell out of me. Definitely a slow burn, but never in a boring way; Denis’ filmmaking is so effective.. I literally pulled a blanket over my head and left it there for like thirty seconds.

    ★★★★

    PTA seriously just made the best rom com of the year.

    A doozy of a gothic, romantic comedy. Hilarious, searing, and honestly pretty fucked up. Day-Lewis is obviously good, but Vicky Krieps is *astounding.*

    ★★★★½

    "Like watching paint dry" is something some have said about this movie, and it's true if we're talking about watching paint dry on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
