The Worst Person in the World ★★★

AFI 2021: film #3

“i always overdo it”

had high hopes for this and it held up for a while, especially in its humor, but i’m not really sure what i’m supposed to take away from it in the end. the protagonist starts out pretty fully formed but then the writing begins to disintegrate and chip away at her until she’s left a manic pixie shell of her former self, but maybe that’s what she was all along on paper and i just didn’t see it. either way i do wish this was more about her and less about her relationships, the drama becoming tedious and by the last act totally lost me when it was supposed to be emotional or whatever. damn
