    This is basically the movie you think it is but I thought the unique setting did a lot for it. It’s big on mood and atmosphere and captures the sort of abandoned world feeling of the early pandemic very well.

  • A Chiara

    A Chiara


    A Calabrian Nancy Drew goes looking for her missing mobster dad. Not bad but struggles to find a solid momentum.

    Here’s a movie where Brad Pitt speaks in patois for at least five minutes and Anthony Hopkins continually kisses his two adult daughters on the lips. 

    For such a gorgeous looking movie (Hey Emmanuel Lubezki!) this is so fucking long and begging for parody. But the ending is very nice. Thomas Newman also does a lot of heavy lifting here. And wow is this the moment in the culture when people discovered the ukulele “Over The Rainbow” cover? I think…

    Killer style.

    My first from this director, and it was the absolute perfect palette cleanser after A HIDDEN LIFE. Funny, violent, dark and absurd. The shot of him sharpening the fan blade on the pavement while driving down the road is one of the funniest things I have seen all year.
