Imperator Ç’s review published on Letterboxd:
So, I finally accept it, Carax isn’t for me.
What can I say about Annette, huh… I did enjoy it, and I like a lot of its individual ideas — can’t help but thinking Bo Burnham would kill it on stage should “The Ape of God” become a real thing — as well as the place where the plot goes, but… I didn’t feel the thing.
When it was over I was glad that I watched it, and I really value the whole uniqueness it represents — it most certainly is a sensational Cannes opener and a gorgeous theatrical experience, two important things after this hellish year — but… I really felt cold.
Anyways, Driver and Marion are really powerful together — we’ll be talking about a number of scenes in this for years.
