My Top 100 (in progress)
I don't The Devil All The Time is the best film of its kind, but I was very entertained by it. I enjoyed the story. I loved following around Tom Holland's character. However, I think the story takes on a lot and the script wasn't really able to deliver on every aspect. I am interested to know how the book really compares. I feel like the story's commentary on religion and war was something that was simply grazed in this adaptation. The book would have to divulge into these themes more you would think.
Greta Gerwig breathes such life into her films. I hope she always makes film so infused with joy and youthful, electric energy. It's exactly what I want in a film. It makes my heart race. It makes me cry, because I am so overwhelmed. Gerwig directs her films like the perfect symphony. There is absolutely nothing like it.
I wouldn't say Little Women had the exact same effect on me that Lady Bird had, but that is to be expected.…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
During that scene where Elton is trying to record "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" and John is inviting Elton into a closet with him, I could hear the most ominous, villainy music coming from one of the other theaters. It was very fitting.
