    Promising Young Woman

    A potentially interesting premise executed with the subtlety of a chainsaw. And it feels like that's precisely what was desired. Tonally all over the place with pedestrian plotting. Feels more like an exercise than a film (could it have worked better as a short?) that just keeps going and says the same thing over and over, sometimes losing its message in the process.

    There's a lot of talent and skill here (Carey Mulligan is excellent, as always), but the culmination of everything only connects emotionally or intellectually on the most basic and shallow level.

    ★★★½

    Why he began racing that bus every day will remain the greatest mystery.
