    things i loved about ZOLA
    -the gorgeous grainy pastel neons
    -nicholas braun rapping along to "hannah montana" by Migos
    -the way it grabs you by your balls and refuses to let go the entire runtime
    -the run the jewels needle drop
    -the constant aggressive (but earned!) tonal shifts 
    -how it had me yell-laughing 
    -the grimy florida underworld with the backdrop of kitschy hotels
    -the prayer before the stripping
    -the AMAZING dance sequences  

    bravo. favorite movie of the year so far.
