Room ★★★★

Okay, this disappoints on a re-watch. I kind of get the complaint about the cinematography from being in Room to post-Room. But I'll still stand by that there's enough of a difference, mostly in framing to create a wider landscape.

Also questioning just how great Tremblay is considering he's probably just naturally acting as he would as a kid himself -- he isn't Leo in Gilbert Grape level. But Larson is still aces and the screenplay really hits all the notes it needs to as a character study and social commentary of our own tendencies to exploit a bad situation.
