Basically The Fabelmans from the dad’s POV.
A problematic fave. The icky banquet sequence is the Spielberg equivalent of QT dropping N-bombs in Pulp Fiction. And definitely wanted to see Willie magma-fied. But what a gorgeous, pristine, slick piece of machinery. The proverbial cinematic "rollercoaster ride", with an actual rollercoaster in it.
No central character.
No defined purpose for side characters.
No three acts.
No internal references.
No political polemical voice.
One of the best films ever made.
