Promising Young Woman ★★★½

Very much enjoyed this! But I often felt like its provocations were undermined by its tidiness, narratively, morally, etc. Everything feels a bit purposeful, which isn’t a problem unless it shows. That said Carrie Mulligan is obviously sensational, one of the best in the game, and always manages to act with a sort of flammable poise that you can’t look away from. And not the point but the “Stars are Blind” drug store sally is extremely charming and hot.
