Annette ★★½

Unfortunately insufferable...maybe not as mindnumbingly infuriating as something like Greener Grass, but even more disappointing since you know this is the bloke that brought you Holy Motors almost a decade ago. 

Some funny gags here and there, but less engaging and certainly less bold than Carax's previous pictures. Almost worth it just to see how hard Adam Driver, Marion Cotillard, and Simon Helberg were willing to commit to it. Like, Driver goes all out...but then again, when doesn't he?

"So May We Start" is quite possibly the only good number, as the rest of the songs are pretty much just the same phrases repeated over and over again with little to no verses. Yes, you may start. Now stop.
