    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "First off, fuck your bitch and the clique you claim" - Tatsuya Nakadai playing Hanshiro Tsugumo in Harakiri probably.

    I cannot believe how great of a movie this is. It really is transcendental in every area of the filmmaking process. First off let's start with JUST the visuals. The cinematography on this was bananas. So many iconic shots from start to finish. Somehow the wind was just right for every single shot with dust flowing up perfectly. The dutch tilt…

    This is a freaking masterpiece. Absolutely every single person on this was firing on all cylinders. Iñárritu absolutely killed it with the direction. Chivo Lubenski flexing on absolutely everybody with cinematography. Casting was off the charts, fourth-wall-breaking good. Keaton as a past superhero actor trying to be taken seriously again with an impeccable performance?? Norton as a difficult actor who is a pain in the ass to everyone to leave it all onstage? Even Galifianakis as someone who wants to…

    La pura neta, se me hizo tán pero tán lenta la película. Obvio, todo esto fue a proposito. Entiendo que tienes que tener esta calma y tranquilidad para enseñar que todo se hizo para combatir esta plaga. Pero pues ni modo, solo no es para mí.

    Las tomas son maravillosas y ¡cómo no! Con la experiencia que tiene Juan Pablo González en documentales, todos los planos salen de un ojo que tiene tanto amor por el paisaje de Jalisco.

    Ver cómo estas empresas locales son afectadas por las compañías internacionales (estadounidenses) es poderoso, especialmente usando algo tán mexicano como la tequila.

    This was a nice watch at Sundance but even at the clean 98min runtime it seems like they simultaneously have too much to say but not showing much of it leaving you wanting more on certain aspects but a leaner runtime or faster pace. Ultimately the performances were great and the director Adamma Ebo shows the world she's here to stay with this debut.

    Naturally this will have loads of comparisons to The Righteous Gemstones, but while they focus on…

    Guys, come on. It's a Disney movie following a Latin background with music by Lin Manuel-Miranda with the central theme around family. How was I gonna even think about rating this under 4.5 stars?

    The animation is crazy insane and vibrant, the songs are catchy and relatable, the story was woven great, the comedy hit, and the voice acting (specifically from Leguizamo) was amazing! Very little things to mark against this movie, I loved it!

    Idk how to truly feel about this. On one hand, the immigrant story with mixed-status families is so important to be put on screen and to show the struggles that these families go through, the responsibilities that these children feel from a young age to do this while also juggling what do you want to do with your life. On the other hand, everyone that actually cares about this already knows that.

    Maybe it's also how I feel about this…
