    Shoutout to the new version because I wouldn’t have heard this otherwise.


    Jakob Cedergren puts in one of the best performances I’ve seen in a while. The whole movie is right up my alley and Asher is so compelling there’s absolutely no reason to leave the room. To keep the tension absolutely balanced on the wire with great pacing, superb directing with so little to work with. The snakes…FUCK. A real butt clencher

    I think waited so long to see this movie because I had a hard time picturing Adam Sandler in the role, but I quickly forgot that was ever my concern. I really cared about Barry Egan and it's easy to empathize with his intense discomfort throughout the movie, which is where I thought Sandler would lose the plot but that wasn’t the case. Emily Watson is really believable in parts where I thought her character…

    ★★★

    Jodie Comer plays Marguerite, Adam Driver portrays Jacques, and Matt Damon plays Matt Damon playing Matt Damon from Stillwater. There’s about 30 minutes and two extended rape scenes that I really didn’t need. I actually really like the multiple perspectives angle but I think they left a lot on the table, too much repeated story and not enough new perspective. The best part of the movie was King Henry by a fookin mile, hilarious.

    Story works better as a novel than a movie. My girl Tripplehorn can only do so much heavy lifting. Always love Cruise but he’s not doing anything special here and most of the fun is in the conspiracy of the firm and it’s employees. Feels like this movie couldn’t quite land the plane at the end. Not a bad watch #Hackman

    I can’t remember smiling as much in a movie like this. Idk anything about evaluating directing but I feel like there’s not a second wasted or rushed in the whole film. And the performances are Afuckin1. Definitely one of my favorites. I know I love it because I love talking about it too

    Fuck me up this is fantastic. Alma is one of the most complete/beautiful characters I’ve ever seen, The score is one of my all time favorites. Daniel is obviously great as he always be doin. Really left a bigger impact on the second viewing. Shout out to PTA, he can really do it all. Mostly though, I feel like this movie doesn’t land the way it does without Vicky Krieps carrying a role that I think has a finer line to balance than Daniel’s. Vicky not getting at least a nomination I think is criminal.
