    this film has the best narrator in any film, ever. it’s not even close…

    intriguing dark comedy by villeneuve, not to say too much but parallels to incendies in terms of the focus on interpersonal relationships 

    loved the song choices too

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    good fun!  


    - the bus scene was sick ngl
    - liked the wire work fights, nodding to classics like crouching tiger. it’s a shame they were so clouded by cgi, parts felt so cartoony 
    - tony leung was fantastic, defo brought depth to his role. (there’s a scene where he wears a double breasted jacket and it looks incredible 
    - not sure why there were pokemon but what ya gonna do 
    - some of the writing was cringey 
    - any film with a dragon in is probably worth watching
    - destin daniel cretton directed one of my fav films ever so that’s cool! 
    - nice story
