    Oh, Woe Is Me

    ★★★★

    A surprising spiritual entry into Godard’s filmography, trading his instinctual proclivity toward politics in favor of religious eschatology. But I guess in the long run, Godard leans himself toward the same conclusions, the same musings of romantic fatalism.

    Like, how is this so beloved? Hereditary is a shallow recycling of every classic slow-burn horror. It makes multiple references as if in respect, but the result is cringeworthy homage. Neither…
