    Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris

    ★★★★

    This is simultaneously one of the most surprisingly stressful films I’ve seen in a while while also being 🥹 The Movie. It succeeds at being a Phantom Thread For My Mom fairy tale, and has lots of saccharine but still moving messages about following your dreams, being kind, and not giving a fuck about what others think!!! The extended Dior ad of it all gave me pause but there’s enough basic class consciousness that I was willing to forgive.

    I took so long to get around to seeing this because I for some reason assumed it would be self-serious and visually dour and otherwise boring. Thank god, it is so far from all of those things!! This is classic Paul pulp—I loved all of the silly Jesus fantasies, the dramatic and blatant use of CGI, the offensive sex, the peasants revolting in the climax (and Charlotte Rampling giving her kiss of death!). This was actually so much fun and…
