The Death & Life of John F. Donovan ★★★½

being able to actually log this feels so unreal... honestly i wish xavier had just said fuck it and let himself have a 4 hour long final cut, especially with the hindsight of how little coverage this got in the end :( no matter what i’ll always appreciate how personal and earnest his films are. this obviously had a lot of muddled themes and storylines because it was edited to death, but it still had a lot of strong emotional setpieces and jacob tremblay was amazing! hopefully i can make matthias & maxime the first dolan film i see in theaters since this one didn’t work out for me!!!
