    ★★★

    what do you take for depression?... four husbands.

    it just felt more fiction than fact... which feels like a sort of disrespect towards Judy. i saw the play the film was based off of... the play was a mess and no surprise the screenplay is a train wreck. though reading last year that the script deviated greatly from the play i thought we were out of the shallows, but nop...  

    Renée plays a pill popping singer past her prime...…

    my philosophy is if you want reality go to Warner Brothers.

    -i’m the friendly neighborhood spider-man
    -bitch, please you’ve been to space.

    my lil cousin wanted to see this... i wanted suspense junk, Anabelle or Crawl. 😩 

    good thing that at a second viewing it still holds up and Gyllenhaal as Bette Davis in All About Eve is a knock-out.

    i just hope you realize you’re choosing a life of being alone forever.

    didn’t expect this to be a musical, MUSICAL! that opening number gave me goossebumps... and that’s where it peaked for me.

    the structure of the script was very fascinating! it’s a musical fantasia that never quite takes off, unfortunately. and Taron Edgerton is ELECTRIFYING!! but i came out not really knowing anything about its source material. 

    walking in i forgot who wrote the script, but mid-way i figured it had to be a playwright, (boi was i right). this kind of adaption works best in the stage, in film it felt ‘hollow’.
