    ★★★★½

    This is the third time I watched this. I decided to give 4.5 rather than 4 previously.

    Excellent direction and a screenplay that is really faithful to the novel. Matt Damon is great in this film! So does the rest of the ensemble cast!

    Highly recommended to watch, especially for the science!

    The acting is quite awesome - Mulligan is great in this role! Although she is a promising young woman to win an Oscar, I believe McDormand should be the winner due to the difficulty in acting and interacting with non-actors.

    The screenplay can be a bit bizarre at times - the ending is very strange…

    What a wonderful Best Picture nominee!

    The direction is pretty good, the screenplay as well! Riz Ahmed is excellent in this! The cast is pretty decent (especially Paul Raci)! The…
