Zola ★★★½

an incredibly fast-paced ride that i was completely captivated by from beginning to end. Janicza Bravo's scope is incredible i hold great admiration for how ambitious her vision was and how it was executed, specifically in terms of the editing techniques and sound design (such as the way phone notifications and sound effects constantly linger in the background, acting as their own form of scenery to a point). the hypnotic visual style is consistently riveting and rounds out a concise modernist atmosphere which feels very contained against the 2015 setting (appreciated the Vine references and RTJ needle drop). Paige, Keough, and Domingo's performances are electric, and Cousin Greg from Succession raps Migos' "Hannah Montana" in one scene. another worthy addition to the A24 Florida Saga if i do say so myself
