    On my second watch, this may be my favourite Kelly Reichardt film. (I definitely need to rewatch Night Moves + Wendy and Lucy before I confirm this). Everything about it is so sweet and comforting. 

    Perfectly cast, perfectly paced, perfectly perfect.

    Love that MUBI put this online to match up with the Space Jam 2 release.

    After the first 40 minutes I was ready to be blown away the second act of this thing, and maybe it’s just because I’m never quite as into animation as I want to be, but it just never properly clicked.

    It was very dream like, and had some interesting ideas and visuals, but that was about it. I don’t know. I was interested the whole time…

    Watched this in two parts whilst travelling because it was always one of those films that I thought “yeah I guess I should watch that.”

    And despite this being pretty much what I expected, it still blew me away. There’s so much awkwardness and emotion and some genuinely terrifying Lord Of The Flies type moment.

    I need someone else to watch this so we talk about it more. Definitely one I’m gonna rewatch with friends so we can roast teenage boys while hiding our anxiety about the future of American politics.

    Good fun. Sometimes it can be a little annoying but the good jokes outweigh the bad.

    Enjoyed even more on the rewatched with lower expectations. Gf liked it lots so big bonus points for that.
