Robert Franco’s review published on Letterboxd:
went into this thinking that it was very possible that i’d instantly become a core member of the #lyidatárinnocenceproject. walking out of the movie, while i can’t say that i exactly think that she’s innocent, i hardly find her to be the cinematic villain that some of my more woke colleagues seem to think she is. for instance, i’ve seen some people say that the whole point of the julliard scene is to make her look like the asshole... and i just couldn’t disagree with that more. or rather, maybe the *point* of it was to make her look like the asshole but i found myself nodding along the whole time thinking, “yes, get his bitch ass. this is what a good teacher looks like” lol
also was really taken back by the alec baldwin podcast cameo. it would have been a good bit if at some point in the movie he moderated a three way instagram live interview with lydia tár and woody allen.
