My favourite actress alongside one of my top comedians! Laverne Cox!! Screeching internally at Alison Brie for the second time this month!!!

My most anticipated film of the year is gonna be DIVISIVE as hell. I loved it until I wanted to walk out of the cinema until (I think?) I loved it again.

I’m too emotionally exhausted to describe why the ending is ultimately the film’s most important piece of commentary, but suffice to say, I’m expecting some Discourse ™. I’m going to hold off on a star rating until I’ve sat with it a bit longer; however I will note that this is by far the most visceral reaction I’ve had to a movie in recent memory.

Update: looked at the one star reviews and am now sure I loved it. The cathartic first three quarters coupled with the gut-punching message eclipses my initial anger at the ending.
