    I came into this movie not expecting to love it but maybe like it. I left this film blown away, emotional, and amazed at the capacity to which this film intimately captures not just the story of these two people who so deeply loved each other but also the landscape they so deeply love.

    Do you know that feeling when you are about to cry and the back of your nose begins to feel a tickle, your eyes slightly burn…

    It was funny in a lot of ways and charming in others. Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormack play their separate roles really well in this film. I kept getting second hand embarrassment for Nancy and feeling devastated for Leo in the ensuing conflict so I really gotta appreciate a film that makes me physically react to things. I also really appreciate the use of making every part of the hotel room feel new in different ways. Don’t get me wrong…

    Absolutely baller how many cops get killed in this. What a powerful film about the action and revolution necessary to destroy colonial holds in your people.

    Listen,

    I love when Indigenous filmmakers create art that really delivers and this is it. I loved the visuals and especially the narration from Adam Khalil. I think this film really bones in on the institutions of museums and why they are structured the way they are. Excellent graphics and use of archival footage and those two people at the end have me chills
