    Writing this right now as an introverted person myself (who also loves animals, so there's that), I'm quite surprised that I really didn't care about this movie that much. It has it's moments, but it's too often unintentionally funny for me to really find this movie to be narratively effective. I can see the appeal and I'm glad I watched this, but I just found it to be kind of boring.

    PTA has done it again by making yet another truly fantastic film. The costume design and music alone makes this an Oscar-worthy film. However, the beautiful craft at hand here as well as two riveting performances from Lewis and Krieps truly elevate this movie above what I could have ever imagined. And, on that plot twist that I truly didn’t expect - I think conceptually with the narrative at hand here, it fits well and is pretty thought-provoking. Overall, not a film for everyone, but one of 2017’s finest films in my opinion as I really thought it was fantastic.
