Pain and Glory

Pain and Glory ★★★★½

antonio banderas communicates SO MUCH without any words at all in that scene in his living room with federico (his performance as a whole is great but that scene is particularly affecting). his barely bridled pain and unshed tears absolutely broke me, and he should’ve had that oscar on lock this year but the academy are idiots. extra half star for that ending — i love when a film proves itself in its very last moments and any of my lingering criticisms or discomforts are instantly whisked away and replaced by sheer awe.
