    A stylish, fun, completely inconsequential viewing experience that is perfect escapism for our times.

    [Also holy shit that Daniel Pemberton score cooks.]

    There’s a guy in this documentary who’s apparently the inspiration for Tony Montana in SCARFACE. He is by far the most grounded, relatable, and sympathetic character in the whole damn show. ‬

    What a delight this movie is.

    I know it’s probably super obvious to everyone who’s ever considered it but maybe it’s the fact that many of us are living in quarantine that’s made me realize: Time loop movies are metaphors for human existence. Every day is the same and life feels increasingly meaningless as the years wear on.

    But we are so blessed if we can find someone to experience it and endure it with.
