Really quite awful. The tone of this movie is all wrong.
This is a sensationally good and just superior movie. I wish I could say I wrote, cast, and directed it, and could ask without shame that everyone love and respect me for my accomplishment. I want any free meals and line hopping privileges that might have accrued from the pleasure this movie brought people. It will be a hard movie to beat going forward.
I’ve rated around 1,040 movies at Letterboxd and given out about 35 five-star ratings. That’s…
“My Octopus 🐙 Teacher” was a far more fascinating & moving story than I had imagined it. Mistake on my part to think it frivolous. It is profound. One of those exposures to life on this planet that you know will stay with you in certain ways forever. Strange, beautiful, mysterious thing, life. @netflix
