The French Dispatch

The French Dispatch ★★★

Been having a feeling lately where I’m getting overwhelmed by the amount of reference I feel like I’ve been seeing in recent work. Not sure how to articulate that more but like….we get excited because we recognize the reference or the dedication to period or whatever. But that feeling shouldn’t trump story and the characters should always be served first….???? So….not sure with what to do with THAT. 

This was obviously very meticulously made and full of some really, really dedicated performances that surprised me.

Lois Smith, Jeffrey Wright, Tilda Swinton and Benicio Del Toro saved the film for me


Who cares!!!!!!!!!
