    Amsterdam

    ★★

    You walk into a grocery store—
    You get all the ingredients for a nice dinner.
    A good dinner— expensive ingredients. Premium stuff.
    You know what? You also decide you'll make dessert.
    So, you buy what you need for that.
    David O Russell comes along and says—
    'What great ingredients! I know what to do with them!'
    So, you figure— sure! Why not? I'll let David O Russell make dinner.
    Look at all the amazing people he's invited! Surely he won't…

    See How They Run

    It's like they shoved The Grand Budapest Hotel and Knives Out in a woodchipper and glued together the pieces to see what would happen.

    You can't watch this without thinking of those films.
    I mean... it's still an absolute joy of a concoction... but...

    *waves CRASH*
    *WAVES*
    *WAVES CRASH*
    —oh would you look at that, they're—
    *WAVES WAVES WAVES*
    *CRASHING*
    —corset—
    *rocks*
    °SHORELINE SOUNDS*
    —and in conclusion, it's kinda lifeless, but the cinematography's nice.

    Santa gorgonzola!

    The stars, the sea, pasta, and everything in between. Luca is a lovely story. Simple, clean, full of light, filling in the memories of a summer long long ago. Lighthearted yet bittersweet, an Italian riviera adventure of family, love, identity, and dreams that’s far more delicate and sophisticated than the playbill of a seamonster who wants nothing more than a vespa. This is a very special film— charming, heartwarming, plotlight, detail rich, subtext dripping everywhere like melting gelato.…
