My review for this has been on the tip of my tongue for weeks now and I’m still not confident in what I’ve typed out. It’s a great film, but the message at the end leaves something to be desired. It also shouldn’t be the second highest rated film on here, but that’s recency bias I guess :/
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie is what Green Knight should have been. It’s a film that respectful of the source material (although it’s much more Shakespeare’s Hamlet than it is Amleth: The Danish Viking) while still going about pursuing its artistic vision of the old saying: “pride comes before the fall.” It’s long, brutal, and always a bunch of fun to watch. Recently I’ve been bringing my brother with me to these viewings as a sort of a control subject where he keeps…
It’s the romance movie that every “quirky” introvert can watch and say: “wow, that’s literally me.” It’s impossible not to find this movie adorable. There’s just something about Amelie that instantly disarms you and pulls you into the charming world filled with bright characters. It has a heavy storybook feel to it and it’s supported by some beautiful cinematography and a very cute score backing it as well.
The standout takeaway from this film are the characters. Everybody on screen…
