Horror is the best genre
A three hour period piece about opera and I didn’t even think about looking at my phone the whole time. This and Barry Lyndon are the two greatest period pieces of all time. I think I slightly prefer Barry Lyndon however both are masterpieces. Amadeus could easily overtake it on a rewatch.
I appreciate that PTA tried to do something different here and I think there’s a lot to love here but ultimately I had a tough time getting through it. I can’t give a movie a high rating just because I appreciate what it’s trying to do if I ultimately found it a little pointless and boring. If you love it, I get it. If you hate it, I get it. Probably the PTA movie I enjoyed the least.
