The Father ★★★½

writing this through tears. fuck. fuuuuuuck...

i watched this after last night’s bizarre best actor upset. in a boseman year, they never shouldve ended the show on a hopkins victory, especially since boseman’s performance flies by a lot of this past decade’s best actor recipients. just plain disrespectful.

but... and i hate to say it... i hate to take back my words on mads... anthony hopkins delivers a career-best performance with a final scene so devastating it propels his dementia portrait to the list of all-timers. jesus fucking shit... i just cant stop crying
