    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★½

    Too much.

    The most unnecessarily long runtime. Hammering in its message. There's either very long action scenes or preach-y moments.
    And it's all so so quirky. It's almost as if A24 had a premonition and knowingly put product placement for merch in there.
    Going a little too hard for the cult classic title.

    But I can't be too mad at the film. There's a lot of heart in there. And detail.
    And its message is one I really needed right now.

    The Relic

    ★★

    It had a lot going for it: Linda Hunt and the Museum setting. But this creature feature never seems to really take off. There are moments of suspense and I liked the build-up to the gala night. There’s just something missing.

    That’s cinema, baby!

    Finally, a film that evokes some emotions in me at this year’s festival.
    My girl KStew better get that Oscar. And prison for everyone at Chanel who thought that was an appropriate red carpet outfit. 

    The score was everything! 

    Yes, it might be a little overdramatic. But that’s cinema, baby. I loved that they didn’t go for an historically accurate depiction of events. They gave us a somewhat happy end. 
    And that cinematography was gorgeous. 

    My girl…

    ★★★★

    It’s weird to be euphoric for an uncomfortable, painful film. But it’s just staggering. Poignant.
    It left me breathless, with knots in my stomach. Cinema is supposed to evoke emotions. This film achieved that, not many did so far at Venice. And with what’s happening in Texas, this film feels pressing.
