    An interesting world let down by a unfocused story and direction that needs more style. 

    It’s clear that between Westworld and this, Joy (and probably Nolan) have a great sense on how to build a world. There’s a lot of interesting ideas in this film: Miami’s residents being partially nocturnal, the design of the sunken areas of the city, the little bits of background about the war, etc. there’s a lot of nooks & crannies that’d be so interesting to explore…

    In an attempt to recover from the emotional damage of "Normal People", I've gone on a binge of love stories with happy endings, with this film being the latest entrant.

    There's a lot about this film that I shouldn't like. None of the characters in this film feel like real people, with the exception of Aditi though I think that's more due to Kalki Koechlin elevating the material. The core romance feels rushed. Lara and the film's treatment of her.…
