Promising Young Woman

Promising Young Woman ★★★½

Holds up enough on a rewatch, but a lot sticks out like a bad sore thumb. The scene with the tyre iron exists only for a cool trailer moment and a hero pose for the poster and the stills the tonal shifts are still jarringly untidy and that ending feels way too neat and convenient for the complex story that was providing no easy answers and it feels like a huge cop out.

That being said, the strengths of the film still make an impact the second time around.
