I appreciated this more than I enjoyed it.
Exceptional cinematography as we’ve come to expect from Hoyte Van Hoytema, seamless special effects and a great, restrained performance from Brad Pitt really help this excel on a technical level.
The pacing was very slow at times and I really felt the runtime. I also felt the film would’ve been stronger had it ended 5 minutes sooner allowing for a bit more ambiguity. All in all a strong technical achievement and a thoughtful character study but lacking in excitement or rewatchability for me.
