This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
That all strings rendition of Toxic by Britney Spears mmmmmMMmm 🤤
Movie: “We all laughed. Like it was funny.”
Us, watching: “they were laughing? Bro that’s so messed up.”
Movie: *character realizing Cassie is actually dead and that the rapist smothered her to death and laid next to her corpse all night*
Us: *laughing hysterically*
EMERALD FENNELL. HER MIND.
And the fact that her quote for the director’s spotlight at the Oscars was about how she’s been dreaming of making films about death and murder since she was a little girl. A woman after my own heart.
Really enjoyed the parts of the film with Amanda Seyfried on screen, which was unfortunately just 15 out of 133 mins.
Mini rant I found on my notes app so I’ll just transfer here.
Not to be THAT snowflake but...
I really didn’t appreciate how in *real life* Marion Davies was literally older than Mank. And yet in the Hollywood adaptation we have The pair being 30 years apart. 30 years. Most of the stories we already have feature younger…
This is it folks. The peak of cinema.
Just really funny, angsty, chaotic, anxiety inducing, with a dash of romance. A perfect fever dream. And all in under 80 minutes. Emma Seligman you absolute legend.
Also, I really loved Danielle’s parents - maybe monogamy kinda snapped? And Danielle’s mom is like actually the greatest character ever to be on screen. It’s true.
