    Robust, universal performances. Maximalist cinematography that showcases the body-as-machine. Couldn’t have asked for a better cast, either. Peak Scott Glenn. I also totally get how this didn’t do amazing at the box office bc it’s clearly a cokehead’s paean to sport. Like, most athletes I’ve ever met try not to dwell on the transcendent potential of running. I know like one metal drummer who cares about that shit. Still, not as gay as Ford vs. Ferrari

    Holy fucking shit 😳 World Series of Covetousness and jobber nonsense. We walked out a little under two hours in, after a little under two hours of abso fucking lute nothingness. There isn’t even any fashion. What there is, is ridiculous accents and Phantom Thread pantomiming. Unimportant tax-based infodumping and pirouetting around a legacy enabled by fascist collaborazione. One of the more important moments of dialogue is literally “Can I ask you a question?” “You just did.” All just further evidence of the Netflixization of cinema and, subsequently, culture. Not even bad enough to be camp!

    I remember every single moment in this movie not because I watched it during my formative years but because every beat hits like a note in a perfect pop song. Goes down like a glass of chocolate milk.
