Drew Gebhardt’s review published on Letterboxd:
A movie with some sweet sentiments, but a less than desirable means of expressing them.
An obscenely excessive visual style that I grew so tired of, coupled with a style of humor I am wholeheartedly opposed to (why Daniel had to make himself the receiver of the BDSM “gag” is beyond me). This movie is filled to the brim with a lot of surface level ideas that the Daniels believed they needed to espouse from the highest mountains in the world. Did they really come to any grand conclusion that isn’t staring us all in the face?
Despite this, all of the actors did good for what they were given, and Ke Huy Quan was what really shines.
At the end of the day, this movie is not for me, and any movie that equates the act of suicide with an everything bagel will never sit right with me (I’m begging people who make the movies that A24 distributes to stay as far away as possible from the topic of suicide please)
In the wise words of Alan Scott: “not my cup of tea”.
NEW THOUGHT-Just watched ‘The Choice’ from Amazing World of Gumball
