Annette ★★★★★

I’ve slept on it. Annette is possibly the strangest, most unique film I’ll see all year. What makes it great, though, is that it takes that strangeness seriously and lives within it. It’s like an opera mixed with Shakespearean theatre-in-the-round with a wooden puppet baby. Adam Driver is glorious, fully living in the role of Henry and all his self-destructive tendencies. The writing and direction were incredible, and the music was great. I’m dying to rewatch it so I can pick it all apart. I feel weird rating this because it almost defies rating. It’s something that has to be seen to be believed.
