    “What’s your name?”
    “My name is very fucking confused! What’s your name!?”  
    A masterclass in screenwriting.

    Is Saw an entertaining movie? Yes 100%. Is it a good movie? Nope, not really.  I had a lot of fun watching this film, I laughed a lot, and I got a good amount of scares and gore, which was exactly what I wanted from this movie.  But yeah, it’s not great.

    This film has to have some of the most mediocre performances…

    ★★★★

    Adam Driver and Jodie Comer are absolutely phenomenal in this film.

    ★★★★

    I wasn’t expecting this film to be so beautiful.

    There is something that feels so human about Tim Burton’s over saturated fantastical town in which this film takes place.  Maybe it’s Johnny Depp’s innocent and charismatic performance, or the hauntingly beautiful score, but either way the film deeply resonated with me.  I do wish that the film had focussed more on the relationship between Edward and Kim, and a little less on the town’s people, but nonetheless this film is an odd but beautiful look at the human condition and the inner conflicts that effect us in our day to day lives.
