Spencer ★★★★½

Heaps better on the big screen. It didn’t work as well for me on a screener on my TV because Kristen Stewart talks in a hushed urgent whisper so I missed most of her lines without subtitles. I felt more into all the parallels and imagery this time too. Not to mention the score. It’s close to 9/10 territory but I think it starts to lose its thread in the third act when it briefly turns into a perfume ad and then the confession on the beach… they derail the focus of the film a bit for me, even if it stays handsomely crafted. Maybe these will iron out on further rewatches but I’m just happy it met my earlier expectations on rewatch.

edit: You know what, I'm bumping it to a 4.5 now.
