    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★★½

    I haven't seen a movie in a month.

    That's not really a sentence I'd ever think that I would utter, but here we are! I add this because typically I am watching at least 20 movies a month (with it getting up to 60 in some cases), and in some ways this may have harmfully saturated some great films when I was burnt on watching things. I say this as important context for this film, whenever I return to a…

    ★★★★½

    Writing and making a video on a film is exhausting, especially when it's one that has a special place in your heart.

    Im gonna be honest I must have seen a different film than everyone else because this just was not doing it for on the whole. I love A24, but this one screams of “haha isn’t it great to be weird”. Loved the comedy in a lot of parts, but it was very inconsistent. Really want to love it but it has virtually no progression and no cohesion.
    Main stream audiences will be fun to see where they side.
