    Had never seen anything by Alice Diop before and it was a really interesting watch.

    The film feels almost naturalistic in its depiction of the world and the courtroom (not a surprising choice given Diop's documentary background). It makes the few moments the music kicks in much stronger, and the Rama's realizations of her resemblance to Laurence much more effective.

    It's a satire of Hollywood, of course, but it's also a film about a couple broken people desperately clinging on to the past, and the man that joins this world for money. Loved the way Gloria Swanson acts in this. Her characters cannot help but exaggerate her expressions and use her stare…
