Another Round

Another Round ★★★★½

Have wanted to check this out for months after seeing that still of Mads circulating around film Twitter. After already loving pretty much everything about it, the final 5 minutes left me on probably my favorite ending of the year. Ahh! The backbone of this is the chemistry between these four men, who all have unique stories relating to alcohol that feel fully fleshed out by the end. Mads delivers, without a doubt, my favorite performance of the year. As of now! And the use of music throughout is working perfectly.

I haven't seen alcoholism portrayed like this before in a film. It's Very honest and not in an overly sappy way. It does a fantastic job of highlighting the seduction associated with drinking and not shying away from really showing how great that feeling is. A bit predictable, but I can't complain too hard. This is insanely great.

Sorry this review is a little sloppy, I'm just excited.
