    A gorgeous film about time passing, love, and loss of meaning. Maya Bulgakova carries the film beautifully.

    ★★½

    It desperately wants to be the next Superbad, but hesitates turning the knob to eleven. And when it does, it's mostly through crude, unimaginative and tasteless jokes (some funny one-liners, though!).

    Props to Miles J. Harvey, a comical genius, and to Damon Wayans jr. trying to pass as a 30-year-old.

    ★★★

    I had some difficulties with this one. Lee likes to toy with mood, atmosphere, style and tone, and I keep losing my grip on what he's trying to do (besides the obvious, borderline-preachy thematics). Blackkklansman suffered from this as well, but Da 5 Bloods is even harder.

    But the more I think about it and the more I've read about him as a filmmaker, the more I respect him doing all those things and keeping me on my toes. He is truly one of the greatest masters at his craft.

    Finally: a biography about a male musician who is an alcoholic but, also, a "musical genius".
