    Look, yes, it’s pretty much every Refnism distilled. But like Tenet, I find this to be the film’s greatest asset rather than its downfall. And when you throw great character work and hypnotic visual storytelling into the mix, you get a film that (at least for me) is incredibly resonant. Some cringe here and there? Sure, but it just works.

    What a surprise, the Villeneuve space movie was absolutely fantastic! 

    It’s honestly a bit hard for me to talk about this right now, as it’s such a massive experience that it’s very easy for things to have flown past me on a first watch. But, grading this specifically through my emotional response and what I could gather from a surface understanding, I can definitively say that I loved it. It’s a difficult thing to imagine how Villeneuve can round up…

    The word “masterpiece” is simply not enough. There are very few films that transport me beyond my mortal body and raise my soul into the stratosphere, and this is absolutely one of those. I hope that one day it will be regarded as one of the all-time greatest films…though, why wait?

    Insufferable. Horrid on every conceivable level. Without a single shred of doubt in my mind, the very worst film of the 2000s.
