    This was bad but I still enjoyed it? Yeah? I wasn’t bored. I don’t think any of it is as good as the films it’s clearly inspired by. But, yeah… fine.

    Revisited this for the first time in years. I think the first time I watched this i rented it from Love Film. 

    Anyway!!

    Ooft. Bit good, innit? Bit sad too. But also darkly funny. Beautiful and imaginative visual storytelling from Tom Ford. A mesmerising performance from the Firthmeister. Bravo, Colin! 

    Just a lovely film x

    How could you give this anything other than 5 stars? I’ve never seen anything like it and I don’t think it would’ve been possible before now. I’ve never seen a more accurate, beautiful, painful, funny and sad look at the process of creating. I’m in awe of Bo but I hope he never does anything like this ever again.

    I’m just gonna go ahead and give this a full five stars without thinking too much about why. Simple reason: I had a fantastic time. Not once did I wanna check my phone. Not a single thing in the movie bothered me. I liked everything about it. Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti are magnetic and hilarious. It’s sharply directed. It uses the time loop concept in a completely original way. It was surprisingly touching. I loved it. Favourite film of 2020 so far.
