First Cow

First Cow ★★★

a story about how cow-pitalism's been fucking everybody's shit up even since the frontier days.

fairly wholesome story about some guys just trying to make cookies, but *way* more devoted to style than it is to its characters and as a result, it's gorgeously prosaic and unprovoking. visually a very handsome picture but i just felt completely uninvested in the film's arc (or rather the lack thereof). i see why this is winning so many hearts but i wish it had a lot more depth than it does. the cow was just as cute as advertised tho. wendy and moo-cy.
