Shin Godzilla

Shin Godzilla ★★★★

Reverse-engineering Godzilla back to its position as the physical manifestation of nuclear fear in this sort of far more stoical and dryer Dr. Strangelove-type war satire, while both still making some staggering unmistakable allusions to bleak events in Japan's history and delivering the kaiju/disaster movie goods is surely one of the absolute boldest reinventions of a known property this century has seen. Don't get it wrong, a lot of this doesn't function the way it could for it to be hailed as the absurdly left field blockbuster masterpiece the film often gets close to be, but for all the risks it took, it's already a goddamn miracle everything else works like it does.
