Annette ★★★½

you could throw every single adjective in the English dictionary at this movie and i’d understand where you’re coming from. but, this just transcends bad or good. Annette’s completely within its own realm, and i was on board more often than not. i couldn’t stop getting sucked into the silly and goofy and sad vision of Carax. it's like the weird thoughts you’d write down in your notes app but instead of coming back to them and thinking you were an idiot, Carax just smushed them all together: a puppet for a baby, why not? singing while sex, why not? a song that’s one lyric repeated ad nauseam, why not? a baby flown into a stadium hung from drones, why the fuck not? it’s brilliant.
