Chris Feil’s review published on Letterboxd:
I kind of understand any and all thoughts and opinions about this (it’s thrilling, it’s annoying, it’s sometimes grimly shot and messy, it’s sometimes alive in ways movie musicals seldom dare to be these days, I think people would be less forgiving of the lead character if it weren’t for the real Larson’s impact and legacy, I think it earns being cut some slack, it’s an over-bloated version of what should always be a chamber piece, it’s admirably ambitious for what the text is, Bradley Whitford’s simultaneously crunchy and eerie as hell Sondheim). Personally, I’m happy to just be pleasantly surprised.
