Where the Crawdads Sing

Where the Crawdads Sing ½

I swear the trailer I saw one time in theaters before Black Phone sold me on some Crime Mystery but I got a YA romance snoozefest. The editing of the first 5 minutes felt a little stilted, and fast before the movie hard switched into a skull drag pace. Everything: the pacing, the narration, the music, the dialogue, the camera. Everything becomes unbearably slow and I was lulled into a dreary eyed mental state that lives somewhere between a nap and day dreaming. I’ve never felt the need to go buy concessions in the middle of a movie but I did here, I would’ve walked out if I was watching this alone.
