    All of Us Strangers

    ★★★

    Emotionally paralyzed tableau of gay trauma. Willfully lonely and hermetically self-isolated. Great acting and well made but ugh. Sorry Andrew, not down for a wallow this go round.

    A devastatingly potent deployment of weaponized sound design. 

    The formal concept is remarkable. The way the thermal-cam “fairy tale” challenges the death grip of the overall aesthetic is transcendental. 

    Cinematic superlatives feel both deserved and icky here. I spent a good deal of time wondering if maybe the whole thing isn’t just too damn aesthetic.

    My gay husband and I couldn’t finish an hour of this movie. It has some funny lines but it’s a terribly made piece of film craft with an unlikeable lead and student film level editing and sound.

    The visual aesthetics are on point but in the service of a rote script with lame geopolitical world-building and weirdly flat emotional character arcs. Beautiful but mediocre.
