CitizenHAL’s review published on Letterboxd:
Watching this again and I like it a lot more. It’s so incredibly clever and funny and yet so heartbreaking all at the same time. Even if I don’t like the oscars, I full heartedly believe that this movie deserved to win best picture. It’s an experience that’s different from any other movie I’ve ever seen. I still think people have kinda blown its amazing-ness a little bit out of proportion though. As someone who loves it, I feel like the people who REALLY love it are a tad annoying at times. But like, a hardcore group of stans are annoying, what else is new. But if I let the annoyance of a group of people get to me then I wouldn’t be a fan of a lot of movies and other franchises.
I’m glad I gave this movie a second chance. I’m glad I was able to watch it in an audience full of people who had never seen it before and hear their reactions to the several shocking moments. I love this movie a lot and it’s one I’m gonna be returning to for years to come.
