    Just doing my civic duty as an American and turning my friend into a fellow JFK conspiracy theorist.

    Back and to the left, baby.

    Watching this with someone from New York who excitedly made me stop the movie several times to tell me stories about living there has only further cemented this as my favorite movie of all time.

    I thought it would be a while before anything could overtake Spiderverse as my favorite movie of the year, but this might be close.

    Stylistically, it felt like a combination of a bunch of my favorite movies, and I'm convinced that I could watch people walk and talk endlessly.

    I appreciate how the movie approaches the question of fate vs choice, navigating the anxiety of what-ifs, and ultimately finding comfort in your decisions. No definitive declarations but not overly ambiguous either.

    Also, the ending totally caught me off guard but I loved it. See you then.

    This movie is excellent throughout, but the reveal in the last 10 seconds brought me an unspeakable amount of joy
