Blindspotting ★★★★

This was really unexpectedly funny and full of heart. There has been a surge of media that attempts and largely succeeds at making me feel 2 or 3 emotions at once. The trailer does not do it justice. Between Sorry to Bother You, Nanette, Eighth Grade and now Blindspotting, I’m really excited and inspired by artists choosing to wear their hearts on their sleeve. They aren’t perfect. They are messy. But mess is part of it when you are breaking through to something new and inviting the audience along as you navigate through the pain.

Also, Ethan Embry is unrecognizable. He is the new Anthony Michael Hall in terms of “when did you completely morph into a different body?”
