When you see me again, it won’t be me.
Possibly one of the most insane movies I’ve ever seen.
A maddening, claustrophobic reimagining of a pivotal moment in time in the life of one of the most famous people of the modern age, SPENCER is an absolutely gorgeous film. Shot in almost Kubrickian fashion, every frame is a work of art. Pablo Larraín creates a hedge maze fraught with danger, a world for our princess to bob and weave her way through, desperate to navigate it while keeping her…
“Since 2018, in the wake of the Me Too movement, the film has been appreciated as a feminist horror film and as a cult film.”
Ok, good. Great actually. Happy this movie is finally getting some love. The 10th anniversary in 2019 also brought with it the usual reevaluations and reappraisals that come with this territory. It all warmed my heart. I’ve loved this movie for so long and recommended it to people time and time again.
Man, I’m really bummed I missed out on this one in the theater. THE LAST DUEL is really, really entertaining. Strong performances and a really well-told story that resonates in 2021. Since I didn’t particularly love HOUSE OF GUCCI, this film will go down as the definitive Ridley Scott movie of the year for me. The best thing he’s done in quite a while.
Probably the biggest disappointment of 2021 so far for me. Something just felt off. It needed a score, a new edit and perhaps another draft or two of the script. The film also refuses to fully commit to being a farce (although it comes close a few times) and that leaves the actors feeling like they’re all in different movies.
