Spencer ★★★★½

Y'all were not kidding!

Amazing. Super impressive storytelling. Pablo Larrain directs Spencer wonderfully. It's claustrophobic when it needs to be and also free when it needs to be.

What's instantly recognizable and what I picked up on first is how tall everything is. Everything is hovering over Diana and she's almost always placed in the corner of the room or in-between people. There's very smart and unique uses of leading lines in this movie that I found very impressive.

The ambience and room tone in this film also sounded like the noise of an old tv. That irritating buzzing noise? Succeeds in making every room feel tapped. As if they're all listening. Very smart sound design.

Everyone's already talked about how good Kristen Stewart is. Need I say more? She's fantastic.
