    The racist Asian stuff feels like a bad sketch character. Even if it was “period-specific,” it doesn’t belong in this movie. Baffling choice. 

    I also really didn’t like the final moments.

Their dynamic for 99% of the movie is complicated, but it doesn’t cross a line. And then I think it does. 

    Otherwise, I fucking loved it.
