I’ve never seen a Dolan picture before and I’ve seen gifs of the aspect ratio change a billion times on Tumblr and Twitter and that’s really all I knew about this going in. I’m so impressed with Dolan’s impeccable ability to drop in soundtrack hits and his song choices fit so perfectly. So many complaints about the 1:1 aspect ratio, and I too thought it was just going to be a pretentious, artsy choice for aesthetics, but it actually serves a purpose and works so well for this story. So impressed with this and sets a high bar for the rest of Xavier Dolan’s body of work, which I am diving into posthaste.
