it tries? there's a lot to say about how ambitious this is, and it eventually manages to structure a semi-coherent plot with the whole lot of whatever is going on, but none of it really registers. there's a LOT happening here, and when it's supposed to flow it's repeatedly suspended by how superficial it all feels. that being said, I think this exhibits some of the best technical work of any "new wave marvel" movie yet: top notch set designs, special effects, and sound engineering; however, this does more to show that this all feels like a waste when there's not enough effort dedicated to the screenplay, specifically in terms of character work and relationship dynamics. even if he's in nearly every scene, Dr. Strange himself feels like a footnote in everything that's going on. kinda impressed by how this goes full throttle in the Hollywood Mother traditional practice... at some point she says "I'm not a monster, I'm a mother", that was funny. what was even funnier, however, is the world's least significant/exciting post-credits scene. I mean, good for her *wink wink nudge nudge*! but does that make me wanna watch the next one? Nah.
