When You Finish Saving the World

When You Finish Saving the World ★★

Sundance 2022 #4

I really wanted to like this movie and there's something there, but the main characters were really insufferable, especially Finn Wolfhard's. I don't care if your characters are unlikable so long as they're well-written (Succession anyone?) but these characters are just annoying and really got on my nerves throughout the whole movie. Jesse Eisenberg I love you but please don't use your first draft the next time you make a movie. The two things keeping me from hating it are Julianne Moore who is genuinely great and Emile Mosseri's score which is minimal yet pleasing. Dude's gonna be the next Desplat I'm telling you.
