    Not perfect, but there is something beautiful and personal about this film that just stays with me. The smiles, laughs, wants, struggles, and nostalgia of family. I love that Kenneth Branagh’s care and consideration are so evident. Even with Irish heritage I’m embarrassed to say I had trouble understanding some of the dialogue and it wasn’t even that thick of an accent. Also though Caitriona Balfe was incredible as Ma.

    I like Wes Anderson’s films and genuinely love The Grand Budapest Hotel, Moonrise Kingdom and Royal Tenenbaums. But this film didn’t quite reach those heights for me. A strong beginning, at times quite hilarious writing, and the expected quirky characters and meticulous production and aesthetic but lacks soul, I think due to its anthology structure.

    I love Benicio del Toro and his character and story were touching. He is such an amazing actor. The rest left me wanting, even though Tilda Swinton, Liev Schrieber and many others were funny, at the end the stories just didn’t stick with me.

    Saw the premiere and can’t stop thinking about it. The entire Ray Theater exploded in applause. Carey Mulligan and Bo Burnham are incredible and layered. The perspective on rape culture is spot on. Three scenes absolutely got me: the lawyer’s house, the video on the phone, and the bachelor party nurse scene. Holy shit. 

    I’m touched by this film for what it says about women, society, friendship, and justice.

    What in the actual fuck? Very stabby and very bloody. The actors did a fine job in a super creepy film. I kept my eyes closed 40% of the time. Wish I had earplugs.


    Update: the above was written at Sundance. I watched this film again at home and had much more appreciation for it. Especially Christopher Abbott. Still, stabby.
