drums please, Fab.
This did feel a little underwhelming to me given how I had massive expectations for it. It definitely feels like it was recut to be a more streamlined and entertaining version and that’s fine as well. Simplicity isn’t bad but I just think this could have been a lot more out there, especially the mythicism.
I think it’s a testament to how great Eggers is since this is probably his weakest film but it’s still pretty good. I actually really enjoyed this, but it kind of left me wanting more.
With the amount of content cut out this ultimately felt more like a greatest hits adaptation by focusing purely on the prominent scenes; this inevitably affects the pacing but I think it’s mostly fine.
I think they did a great job with art, characters and tone. This really should have been 2 cours though.
