    John Wick: Chapter 4


    A legitimately perfect end to the story, and oddly meta too.

    A man eventually destroyed by his own legend. It's the perfect arc for the character.

    That said, the script is…

    This film has been called Dadaist, Surrealist, Absurdist. There are some arguments to be made for and against each of them. There is too much a narrative for it to be Dadaist. There is to much normalcy for it to be truly Surrealist. The disconnect between mind and reality is not great enough to be…
