    Kramer vs. Kramer

    ★★★★

    watched in anticipation of marriage story.

    overall, it's very lovely. incredible performances from meryl and dustin. even at its most contrived the dialogue felt true and genuine.

    this has aged surprisingly well, apart from the fact that meryl is painted as the bad guy. i sympathised more with her and understood her reasons for leaving. i wish we'd spent more time examining her inner life and thoughts.

    octavia spencer consistently chooses risky and against-the-grain roles and projects (that hollywood typically wouldn't cast african-american actresses in) and i hope people are taking notice. the films may not always be great but she always turns in an A+ performance. 

    genuinely one of the most exciting performers working today.

    added to 2019 ranked.

    reader, i cried.

    as the film effortlessly swerved through genres and kept reinventing itself i thought to myself "how is he possibly going to end this??" and yet bong landed it so smoothly and with absolute gravitas.

    i loved it. i loved it. I LOVED IT.

    "detective...detective...detecTIIIIIIIIIVE"

    so chilling but so so so excellent. i go back and forth between the social network and se7en often when thinking about fincher's best.

    personally aching for his return to feature filmmaking. it feels like it's been 84 years.
