The French Dispatch

The French Dispatch ★★★★★

There's so much going on in this movie, just runs of complicated dialogue over frenetic moving images that hurriedly and meticulously craft a narrative that make you stop and reflect, thinking "What exactly did I just watch? I think I need to watch it a few more times." Favorite part for some reason was Frances McDormand continuing to write as Bill Murray walks in and reads her submitted story, and Bill Murray's character proceeds to have nothing in the way of feedback. Especially after the story she wrote contained the precocious teen played by the precocious Timothee Chalamet offering his work for "feedback" but wanting praise, and receiving the first of many vicious teardowns of his self-important work.
