    Kevin: I don't really drink...

    Agador: Yeah, but now's the time to pretend!

    All of the performances are pitch-perfect, but Hank Azaria in particular really impressed me on this rewatch, his over-the-top character could so easily be annoying, but instead he's often the funniest, every line delivery exaggerated to the fullest.

    No. No, I didn't kill him. I made Elvis Presley. Nothing all those muckrakers said in their books was true. Me and Elvis, we was partners. It was Elvis the Showman, and the Colonel the Snowman.

    Rian Johnson invented movie entertainment.


    Seriously though, this was an absolute blast. Go watch it now, no matter what you're doing. I have a strong feeling this is going to become a comfort movie for me. Rian Johnson is god. Ana de Armas is perfection. Why are you still reading? Go, buy your tickets. See it again if you've seen it already. Take your family, take your neighbors! Just give me more Benoit Blanc mysteries please

    Leaving the cinema after this ended and for the rest of the evening I found myself having the most incredible, cinematic high I've had in ages. I absolutely adored this one. I feel like I could've watched this endlessly for hours, I never wanted it to end. Love, love, love these characters and their world. Truly the perfect hangout film, my favorite kind.

    More thoughts to come on a second viewing, which I can assure will happen real soon.
