Spider-Man: Far from Home

Spider-Man: Far from Home ★★★★½

Simply put, I Heart Spider-Man. Here in the wake of Endgame Peter finds himself caught between two perceptions of himself: is he the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man or is he the Avenger who went to space and fought Thanos? Weighing down on these tensions is an Iron Man sized weight of grief and anxiety of stepping into Tony's suit. Which villain could possibly be better deployed to break down Peter's sense of reality than Mysterio? I really feel like Mysterio and Jake Gyllenhaal were used to perfection in this movie of forcing Peter into navigating these choices and coming out a better Spider-Man, on top of just being a delight to watch. Of course, around the edges of this movie were there were some side story-lines and characters that did not stick the landing, but they are only small detractions from another great Spidey flick!
