    Apollo 10½: A Space Age Childhood

    ★★★

    While I did find much of Apollo 10 1/2 charming, it was a bit thin in its premise and felt sort of half-baked. I couldn’t help but compare it to Waking Life, Linklater’s first go at this animation style, which was brimming with creativity and took a lot of big, peculiar swings, anything but straightforward and ordinary.

    Don't Look Up

    ★½

    —like watching a two-hour SNL sketch with absolutely no jokes
    —In just about every scene, well after we’ve understood the point, someone (usually Jennifer Lawrence) explicitly says the point
    —I thought I could be pretty cynical but good fucking god
    —worse than normal bad exposition dialogue: bad exposition dialogue about stuff we already know!!!
    —strange as fuck editing choices
    —crossed the line from just patronizing into distasteful
    —I’ll concede it looks like they all had fun making this movie but…

    The Power of the Dog

    ★★★★★

    A slow burn—continually deepening, deliberately confounding—that kept on smoldering in my mind long after I’d finished watching. Exceptional performances from all four principles. Gorgeously shot, eerily scored, and masterfully directed.
