Godzilla ★★★★★

still stand by my original video essay on how this formally explores human insignificance (wow, just realized how long i've been doing this for, christ) but was once again blown away by the human-scaled patience and simplicity of edwards' camera compositions and movements. the moody images and build-up/release are perfectly calibrated and there are so many great uses of the Spielberg Oner, all of which combined gradually invite you into the portent nature anxieties and accentuate the already pretty unbelievable vfx work. only godzilla movie since the original (i've seen thus far) that's genuinely interested in leaning towards the anthropological and melancholy.
