    ★★★★

    Went in thinking this was a romcom... it’s charmingly something else that’s strangely unique. Fantastic performances all around. Music montage scenes slow the pace at times and the film border on twee.

    Sooo slow. Also that Fiennes/Lopez chemistry is... nonexistent.

    Such a solid space western! Nothing to revolutionary in terms of narrative but terrific style and focused storytelling.

    ★½

    Elisabeth Moss is amazing but this film suffered deeply from a classic horror movie miss step: the villain is not allowed to have unexplained super strength and ninja like martial arts abilities. In the action scenes I simply can’t suspend my disbelief because it feels like granting powers like this without explanation is cheap action inserted at the expensive of the story telling.
