    Don't Look Up

    ★★★★

    the discourse is overwhelming but honestly? watching this as a capital S satire made it really really fun. satire is a genre that i feel like is actually incredibly specific and we haven't seen a lot of in years. like idk- some of the discourse i saw was about how depressing it is and how it was hopeless but like yeah. that's the point. its nihilistic and honest and funny and i surprisingly really enjoyed. standout was jonah hill. what a freak

    yet again trying to reenter letterboxd....we'll see if it sticks

    i was pleasantly surprised by this one! it took a second for timmy's accent to settle in but i actually think he pulled through a lot in this. im always wary of him in period pieces because he just looks so....Timotee..... but he ate. and so did pattinson who gave just an absolutely fabulous performance? like it was kind of camp. i loved. as a shakespeare guy too i felt like i was in a little special club. it was fun!
