Molly's Game ★★½

AFI 2017: film #12

what a colossal letdown. i had a feeling aaron sorkin wouldn’t be a natural talent at directing, but i had no idea he would throw together something this haphazard and lifeless and incoherent. it has a couple great sequences but it ends up equaling out to a big old corny mess. i intend on giving this another try when it officially comes out but right now it feels like a fucking shame

BY THE WAY this was the closing night gala and miss jessica chastain HERSELF helped introduce it and had her own speech about aaron (which he didn’t deserve) BUT she really is my Favorite Actor and i was in the same room as her so i can die happy now. PEACE
