tick, tick...BOOM!

tick, tick...BOOM! ★★★

Upon rewatch, it becomes clear that this is a loveable, hare-brained jumble of a musical. Lin-Manuel Miranda may be fast approaching EGOT status but he has here overextended himself as if poetically mirroring the ill-fated ambitions of polymath Alexander Hamilton. Jonathan Larson’s life and works are aching to be told with the reverence and virtuosity they deserve, but this falls short in all but the ridiculously magnetic performance from Andrew Garfield. In fact, his portrayal of Larson is exhaustively exact and earnest that he elevates the film beyond its conflicting constituent parts to be something absolutely worthy of watching. tick, tick, BOOM! coasts on the ineffable flair of Larson and the familiar finesse of Garfield.
