    A Bigger Splash

    ★★

    Terribly boring. As a historical document, I guess I’m glad it exists? Perhaps you have to be a die hard Hockney person to truly enjoy?

    Locked Down

    ★½

    Completely brainless, vapid, and a teeny bit fun in certain moments. Chiwetel is nevertheless charming and the only element that holds it all together.

    Beautiful Boy

    ½

    A perfect storm of shortcomings: a hastily-coronated twink lead cast to pump foreign sales numbers, a cash-rich financier trying to buy relevance, and the very difficult-to-marry source material of two novels by different authors describing the same period of time and events. 
    The result is a Potemkin film; A car without an engine; a heart without blood. 
    Chalamet’s impression of a brooding sexy addict is ill-informed, immature, and embarrassing at times. 
    Could have done with about ten more drafts on the script, or perhaps better to have left as two novels with the movie un-made.
    Half star for the sound editor.

    Eighth Grade

    ★★½

    Cute. Relatable. Tender. Forgettable.
