    2020 X-Mas Marathon

    If your soul was a candle, Derek Cianfrance is the dude wetting his fingertips and pinching the wick.

    Probably not the best movie to watch late on Christmas Eve, but then again, this is the kind of thing you want to sit with for a while.

    Riz Ahmed and Olivia Cooke both deliver standout performances, and the sound mixing was really crucial and executed perfectly.

    I figured the whole "sound of metal" thing was referring to the…

    Alison Brie's first screenplay is ambitious and original. There is a massive tone shift throughout, but I was hooked the entire time. A lot of people seem to be rating this badly because it "doesn't know what it wants to be" but I disagree. I think it just wants to be a bunch of different things, and I'm here for it.
