    ★★

    Every man in this movie is a different variation on the theme of “shitty boyfriend”, and it unnerves me.

    “I think we’ve had enough Kentucky for one day.”

    Pretty much the anti-Parasite in both form and function, wrapping a truly poisonous “poverty is the result of not working hard enough” message up in a blandly histrionic melodrama that seems to think pointing and gawking at how bad disadvantaged people’s lives are is the same thing as empathy. Howard’s usually a solid craftsman even at his worst, but there’s such little style on display here that I can’t help but wonder why he had to pick this as his big awards play. Frustrated me to no end, which means it’ll probably win all the Oscars.
