    This is such a tight screenplay. I mean that both technically and also the way somebody would point at the movie poster in passing and say, “that movie’s tight, bro,” to their friend. What spectacular performances by the whole cast. What a remarkable movie.

    Ok. First, what. Second, Lupita Nyong’o continues to be a revelation in every single one of her roles. Third, what.

    This wasn’t exactly a great movie, cinematically speaking, but it was entertaining and fun as hell. I’ll probably enjoy rewatching a bunch of very (very) hot people make a bunch of very (very) bad decisions. I’m also gonna go ahead and add on an extra half-star in spirit, for Blake Lively and Henry Golding in extremely well-fitting suits and leather jackets.

    The true masterpiece of this movie lies in that every time I watch it I’m both horrified by and in awe of every action.
