all style, too much substance.
honestly tho? you guys are just being mean!! this wasn't as atrocious as some of the reviews had led me to believe. i will admit that having read the book beforehand (which i absolutely loved, btw, and, which--i know, i know--was infinitely better) gave me a huge advantage in understanding what the hell was going on. i can imagine that it could get confusing for someone who didn't have that going in.
this was one of my most anticipated of the year so yeah, i'm a little bummed. you can't feature a perfume genius song in your trailer and not expect me to think it's gonna be 5 stars.
anyways this is a boris stan account
