    It pains me to say this because I was looking forward to it and I’m a huge fan of Kelly Reichardt, but I just did not like this movie at all.

It’s still good though and I had a fun time watching it, basic ass hoe that I am. I find it hard to not enjoy all of the movies in this universe of movies, the whole retro aesthetic of them and the unique…
