Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi ★★★★★

Intitially put this on because I've become obsessed with the tangible sense of MYTH and reverence(lol) that this movie oozes, but found myself very drawn to Rian's physicality in this viewing. Very fun to see how I can trace his physical mannerisms, specifically between this and Glass Onion— small little physical movements the characters do (Luke's shoulder swipe, for example. Or the little lightsaber toss). Also something in the way he motivates his camera makes me just see him. It's no secret I'm a fan of Johnson's visual language, but there's an undeniable objective elegance to what's on screen here that imo is the best a blockbuster has seen in ages.
