    Alright, I'm calling it now, cis people aren't allowed to make movies any more, y'all can't be trusted.

    It's not that it's offensive - though, y'know, yeah - it's that it's really fucking bad. Aesthetically and emotionally ugly without cause; borrowing the patina of experimental filmmaking to cover for a lack of understanding of visual language; borrowing the language of minority experiences to tell a story about two cishet white people experiencing difficulty for the first time ever; relying on…

    My god I wish I didn't have to like/appreciate/settle for films that are well made except for being explicitly and maliciously transphobic and queerphobic.

    Like, as a gay trans person with significant trauma and disability issues I'm always doing my level best when watching or rewatching films like this to not let how personally offensive a film is get in the way of how """objectively good"""" it is -- but sometimes absorbing only the technical elements about a film means…

    I have to find something else to watch immediately, there is no way this can be the last film I watch in 2022.

    This film isn't bad because it's disrespectful to Marilyn Monroe's memory (it is, but that's not something that matters to me and I don't think this needs to be respectful to be Good). It's not bad because it's deeply uncomfortable, cruel, sensationalist, violent, and exploitative (it is all of those things but a good film can be…

    Literally if I think about this movie for even a second after watching it I go insane with how dumb and bad it is in so many ways, but every time I watch it I get swept up in it all the same. Whoever started referring to Nolan's work as "dumb smart movies" really hit the nail on the head. This film is a beautiful precise structure that immediately disintegrates upon contact with air but goddammit, I know I'll love it for two and a half hours every time.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Saw an advance screening of this and had to scream into my hands for a week and a half because of the embargo and then we recorded a special minisode of Pitch Shift about it because we were too enraged and you can find that here: podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/minisode-the-gentlemen-review/id1475764071?i=1000460050549

    THIS IS NOT A GOOD FILM???

    It's relentlessly racist and homophobic, it has one woman in it who's in more than one scene (and whose only plot related role is to nearly…
