Annette ★★★½

Uhhhhhhhh… I think… maybe I loved this?

I have no fucking idea what to make of this film. Tomorrow it could be my favorite film or my least favorite (well not literally but you get what I mean). It’s so silly and over the top, it feels like Leos Carax just went “FUCK IT” and lost all sense of his sanity while making this film. It’s absolutely all over the place with its tone, themes, pacing, narrative - just about everything really. There were moments that were genius, moments that were terrible, and everything inbetween. 

The soundtrack was certainly incredible, Adam Driver was amazing of course and the visuals were quite great. But… idek bro at this point I have no clue what to say. It certainly was an “experience”. I enjoyed it in the end so I’d say it’s overall positive but I wouldn’t the quick to call it great or good. 

Kinda wish I never watched this because this now frustrated me more than anything in both a good and bad sense. I guess I’d recommend it…?
