i love escapism, greta gerwig, and character-driven everything
which is an unfortunate way of saying i am a writer
i have never read dune nor have i seen any of the previous adaptations
this ruled!!! gorgeous visuals that really remind me of classic hollywood scope and *this* is the science fiction i love, that brims with humanity
excellent cast/performances; excited to see what happens in part 2!
this isn't nearly as boring as people are saying; would make an incredible double feature with SPEED RACER, which i couldn't get out of my mind the whole time
THE FATHER is an incredible labyrinth. Anthony Hopkins gives one of the greatest performances of the year, bolstered by a truly soulful Olivia Colman, but it's the design of the whole thing that's left me reeling. It's just exquisitely created. Every time you get comfortable or start to think you know where it's going, there's a reset or a return.
Wanna get my hands on this script so badly. Extra half star because I have been struggling with memory issues lately and Hopkins really nailed layers of perspective that I haven't been able to articulate.
