    Unreal. Feels like it plays out just as you expect for a good portion of the film: off-kilter Coen romp about the pains of writer's block, the weight of capitalism, and the empty dream that is working in Hollywood. There's plenty of eccentric characters, carefully constructed dialogue, and of course cinematography de la Deakins. (a la Deakins? idk. English is hard enough)

    But in the last quarter or so, this shifts into something else entirely. Or at least, it doesn't…

    Beautiful and heartbreaking. Calculated and organic. I've never seen a movie literally journey to find and reveal its emotional core like this one does; especially so late in the film. It squeezed tears out of me at multiple instances.

    Time to watch more Wim Wenders I guess?

    Bro I legitimately used to have this rated at 3 stars??? This is easily the best movie featuring Catherine Zeta-Jones and lasers, don't even talk to me

    I used to genuinely hate the Julia Roberts bit but I came around to the concept when I heard Cockney Cheadle start giving Tess advice on her Julia Roberts accent. The only way to make something that on-the-nose good is to just push it over the edge like that. Fantastic.

    Not enough Reuben,…

    The opening bits of this are so goofy. When it showed an animatronic killer robot step on a human skull I snorted. During the credits when it showed a children's playground just SWATHED in flame, I laughed out loud. So I kept waiting for Arnie to point at Robert Patrick at some point and go, "He's a Terminator... 2" but apparently that's a step too far.

    Edit: just realized David Ehrlich made a similar observation which just upsets me cause this is my most liked review and it sucks

    This is like if you wanted to watch Good Will Hunting but needed a reason to hate Edward Norton
