🌼 An Absolute Amateur 🌼
Saw a really excellent review noting how easy it would have been for Riz Ahmed to descend into melodrama and yet he keeps such control, subtlety and honesty in his performance which makes it stand out even more. A very immersive film that I’d love to experience in the cinema when we can!
Never been a fan so I went into this with 0 empathy but came out with a new found respect for Tay-tay.
Still found the scripted nature of the doc a bit off-putting- how truthful was everything we saw?
But it’s an important message especially nowadays about how we have an effect on celebrities lives without even knowing it.
