TheSchneiderman’s review published on Letterboxd:
Honestly, this movie is phenomenal. It is so much better on rewatch.
The character work is incredible, and all the flaws (Laura Dern, Luke, and Kylo) all leveled out. I was able to look at it from a writing perspective, and realized it's truly brilliant.
I really saw all the conflicts with each character, and it was so investing.
Of course the Finn and Rose subplot is terrible, but there's at least some future set up to it.
I'm so sorry for giving this 2 stars before. Easily the best of this new trilogy.
