2021s biggest disappointment thus far
Wow, holy shit. Where to even begin.
A film meant to provide an insight into the human condition through communication and behaviour, however no one in this film behaves or communicates like an actual person. Their motivations and actions are contrived so grossly to play into an entirely trite dramatic narrative. And to add insult to injury, Inarritu once again takes it upon himself to chop and screw this film in a way that makes the plot contrivances and paper…
Non-stop sensory overload. Felt like when I used to mix adderall with a bottle of robitussin and stare at the colour changing LED lights in my university dorm room while eating my roommate's hot cheetos.
3 stars for the objectively incredible visuals and technical execution. But what exactly was I meant to take away from this?
