The Peanut Butter Falcon

The Peanut Butter Falcon ★★★★

Besides the probably best Shia LaBeouf of all times, the biggest achievement of The Peanut Butter Falcon is it's narrative structre. While many other feel-good-movies (and undoubtedly this is one) often tend to drifft off to very cheesy or tearjerking parts, this film smoothly keeps telling the characters' journey through wet and green marsh landscape. The character Zack thankfully does not become the special sidekick but right from the beginning he is an equal counterpart for the buddy story instead. And like already mentioned, Shia LaBeouf finally managed to step out of the giant Transformer shadow to give a very good performance (which I never thought, I would have to admit).
