Malcolm & Marie

insufferable. Levinson throwing a feature length tempter tantrum because nobody liked the last shitty movie he made, where every attempt at making some grander gesture at the state of film culture at large is just lost in an avalanche of nonsensical choices. the idea to paint every critic of Assassination Nation as racist because you casted POC in the lead here is such a baffling decision it honestly stuns me that it made it past pre production. even if Zendaya and JDW try (they aren’t that good here, perhaps career worst from JDW?), their efforts are completely wasted by this horrifying excuse for a script. even when it drifts off from the culture war horseshit and tries to say something about relationships it just falls so fucking flat. just stick to making Euphoria dude. instead of watching this just go watch a Cassavetes, the person he’s clearly trying to ape here
