Doctor Strange ★★★★

Reinforces my belief that while the MCU can mostly produce reprehensible dreck that feels like a waste of talent and money, they can sometimes pull a rabbit out of their massive conglomerate hat and really impress me with something heartfelt, artful, and ridiculously fun. I still have many issues with Doctor Strange, but it holds a new place in my heart for making me strive to always be a more creative and ambitious artist in a time when people think throwing your toys in a bathtub and adding voiceover to it is considered artistic. 

"Death is what gives life meaning. To know your days are numbered. Your time is short. You'd think after all this time, I'd be ready. But look at me. Stretching one moment out into a thousand... just so that I can watch the snow."
