    Heaven Adores You

    ★★★

    sadly, this film doesn’t do its subject much justice, as it really feels as though you only just start to scratch the surface of Elliott & his music and then it abruptly ends. Great to hear from those closest to him throughout his life, but we’re not given enough time with any of them to really learn a whole lot, and therefore, there’s not much insight gained into who he was as a person and musician beyond vague generalizations. Leaves a lot to be desired. 

    Elliott’s someone I so greatly admire, and aside from the film’s drawbacks, I still enjoyed just spending time with he & his music.

    ★★½

    any depth to be found was rooted in Gaga & Driver’s performances & the tragedy of the story itself, but maaaan it was so hard to get past the caricature-ish accents and acting (Jared Leto being the worst offender by far) that bogged down most the film

    had me grinning from ear to ear, euphoric and bursting with laughter, weepy & nostalgic; just a bonafide good time. 

    I love movies, man

    A visual feast, though I wish I had more knowledge of Arthurian legends going in, as that would likely have made the story more cohesive and compelling. 

    Dev Patel is, of course, woooooonderful. 

    I think I’ll give it another watch
