Valerie: “Boy, I’d love to find a portal into your brain.”
Kaufman: “Trust me, it’s no fun.”
There’s as much here to enjoy as there is to admire.
As smart as it is clever.
As fun as it is funny.
As innovative as it is insightful.
This film is just so fucking great and holds up beautifully all these years later….and so it shall remain. The mind-blown emoji was invented to describe this script.🤯 Nobody out there doing it like Kaufman. Nobody.
PS: this features Meryl at her peak powers, as far as I’m concerned, and is easily one of her best performances.
