    THE MOVIES ARE BACK!

    Watching this with a group of friends, in the exact orchestra centre of the Debussy theatre, right before the World Premiere, was honestly one of the most euphoric theatre experiences in quite sometime. Slightly disappointing for Wes Anderson standards (I would argue that this is his second worst film), but still contains a genuine core amidst its moments of Parisian incoherent chaos. The Chalamet/McDormand segment is basically Wes Anderson's La Chinoise (1967)!

    What a time to be alive.

My issues are prominently with the needless amount of focus on tedious subplots, where some characters (Labude especially) are needlessly implemented into the narrative for sake of additional political/social context. There's already enough strong visual metaphor and commentary present; especially with the final scene representing the stark and doomed transition between…

    The greatest threat to modern cinema isn’t streaming services, comic book flicks, or even trend-setting cinematic universes…

    It’s the rise of the Oscar-bait biopic.

    Taking the life of an influential figure, and minimizing their entire career into a cramped two hour-sub run time seems ludicrous. The existence of this genre to begin with, is simply meant to pander towards nostalgia driven elders, who crave for cinematic fantasies to re-live their idols of yesteryear. In 2019 alone, we have films based…
