    Never Rarely Sometimes Always

    ★★★★

    The injustice of it all; she should have never had to experience this but horrifically, this is a bleak reality for so many women. Great performances and such sensitive storytelling - surprisingly powerful in its silent nature. An anger-inducing, emotional, necessary watch.

    ★★★★

    This is everything that Bombshell (2019) was not - it was so refreshing and necessary to have the female gaze on this mainstream topic. By keeping it slow, soundtrack-less and minimalistic, it really hit home how horrifying it is to work day-to-day in such a toxic, misogynistic environment under a tyrannical boss - and the system which continues to enable these monsters to reign. It portrayed events I had never even contemplated which is the very reason why it needed to be made. The Assistant (2019) is now the bar that all #metoo features need to meet henceforth.

    I honestly just burst into tears when shown the extent radiation can cause the human body (in Open Wide, O Earth). TV has never been this traumatising yet completely compelling.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Half way through, I was certain the central theme of the film is that nothing matters and there's no point in love at all - it's a mere distraction before the inevitability of death.

    After it ended, I realised it was about how everything matters even if it does eventually end and love, love is the most important thing of all.

    It's hard to explain but this is seriously so beautiful.
