yazz! *･ﾟ✧’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’m sorry to dislike something so many of you liked, but...............what is up with the tone of this film ??? and the editing ??? the interviews work but the whole fourth-wall ferris bueller side comment thing doesn’t.
im so confused bc i thought this was meant to be a meaningful portrayal of the harsh circumstances harding faced; it kinda does that but then what’s with the comedy? does this film not just echo everything that was already said about her in the media idk.
strong performances, strong soundtrack but that doesn’t make a strong film
edit 2: so charlie (letterboxd.com/focalpoint/) dropped me a message and shared his review with me and he'd interpreted the editing etc. differently to me - the beauty of cinema/art being subjective - i hadn't considered this and think its an interesting take on the film. would recommend giving it a read whatever your opinion is: muchadoaboutcinema.com/2018/01/28/i-tonya-a-statement-on-truth-and-abuse/
