Jackson’s review published on Letterboxd:
CHECK OUT MY TOP 20 FILM OF ALL TIME, TOP 10 OF 2017, and TOP 20 MOVIES OF THE DECADE
This is such a perfect film.
From the cast of Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracey Letts, Beanie Feldstein, Lucas Hedges, and Timothée Chalamet, this film is the great thing to ever happen to cinema. And also the beautiful camera work that leaves you with just an amazing feeling in your heart.
I truly believe that Saoirse Ronan should've won for this role. NO, I DO think she should’ve won for her role in this film. It’s definitely the best female performance of the decade, I will argue that at court if I have to.
And there is no reason that lady bird shouldn’t have won best pic, while I love the Shape of Water, Lady Bird is just so much more then a movie. It’s an experience.
And the direction beautifully done by Greta Gerwig I rlly believed is the best female directing of the decade. And also the screenplay written by Gerwig is the best writing of a film since Casablanca. Gerwig 100% should've won for her screenplay of this film.
And that ending monologue from Lady Bird talking to her mom just gives me the Goosys.
This movie hands down is an A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
