One of the better surprises of 2019. Not just another [space] film. A stunt double, an astronaut, it doesn’t matter, Brad Pitt can do it all. A dark atmosphere presence like Ex Machina (2014). Hate it or love it — no in-between. Risky — yet still alluring. Disappointingly, it won't receive any love at the Oscars. It'll age well.
Filmed all over my neighborhood, so when I say this movie hits home, I mean it. So much heart and soul. It never loses sense of realism. It includes one of my favorite scenes all year. Jonah Hill delivers all emotions with impact & passion. Nostalgic and genuine. It made me reminisce of my time growing up. I had similar friends. I love that Jonah Hill didn’t shy away from slurs and vulgar language, because it really be like that when you’re young.
