    ★★★★

    Getting $50 from Polygon or some other Vox site that covers movies now for some reason to write a piece on this with a thesis that goes something like "A charming portrait of a soon to be middle-aged woman who finds her life on the rocks that ultimately fails to account for all the ways that America, the country she lives in, is also on the rocks," making me the main character of Twitter for the day but also giving me enough money to pay for one (1) value size box of Honest Company plant-based baby wipes.

    IVES: Pincer movement. But not in space, in time. Half his team moves forward through the event. He monitors them and then attacks at the end moving backwards. Knowing everything.
    THE PROTAGONIST: My God... he’s in sicko mode.
