Annette ★★

I thought this would be so much more abstract, visually appealing, and well-made, but alas it’s just annoying and presents terribly no matter the intention. Some rules are meant to be broken, but that doesn’t justify floundering around aimlessly knocking down every formal standard of filmmaking for the sake of doing so. On any day, you’ll end up with something as silly and grating as this. Baby Annette is foul and Adam Driver rapping to an interactive audience in a bath robe gives me the same sinking feeling as watching James Corden humping the air in a rat costume.
