The Florida Project

The Florida Project ★★★½

Do I think this is exploitative and even manipulative? Yes.

Was I unable to look away from it? Also, yes.

This is a hypnotic, visually striking, and utterly compelling story to experience. Willem Dafoe effortlessly slips into his role and the cast around him are naturalistic and committed to their world. I just question the need for a film like this. It may be excellently made but its intentions are either dubious or hackneyed. Either way, it is undeniably watchable and that's quite a feat for an otherwise quiet low-budget drama film.

Scavenger Hunt 68 #25 out of 30 - Watch a movie I had on one of my previous scavenger hunt lists but never watched.
