    ★★★★

    Absolutely stunning visually. Feels like The Maxx but even more extreme (but less surreal). Love the general Raymond Chandler noire narration vibe at the top, despite there being no mystery. 

    Haven't seen the rest of the Oscar animation nominees yet but this will be hard to top.

    I can't help but think this role would be better served by someone 5 years older and 2 feet taller BUT Radcliffe does a nice job of filling the role. His outbursts whenever he felt about to get caught always felt like a flash of brilliance.

    On the whole, a fairly disturbing film if you think about it in the context that these people actually exist and that our current US political climate is probably fanning their flames.

    ★★★★½

    If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.

    Must see for anyone. Period.
