    Bones and All

    ★★★★

    84

    Bones and All presents people as a culmination of their traumatic past searching, no, longing for a glimpse at a murky future. Really enjoyed the delicacy it took when showing the all consuming desire of freedom and the burden it shoulders from generational grievances. The film bobs and weaves between the subject matters of exploration, trauma, and subsequent purpose, often going hand-in-hand with the impulse to survive. Chalamet and Russell kill. It’s about what I was expecting.

    RRR succeeds the most as a rejuvenating slice of spectacle cinema. As my first Bollywood film, this hits about every mark you could hit with regards to any viewing experience ever and by the last hour, the outside world seemed to melt away as I, myself, melted into the world meticulously crafted by Rajamouli.

    And Benoît (DP) kills it yet again.

    A stripped down revenge story that’s given a heist narrative made to please everyone. Statham and Ritchie seem to be operating in unison as both find their cooperative niche between performance and synthetic execution. They both exact brute strength from the equally brutish story. I enjoyed the fuck out of this to say the least.

    This shouldn’t be this funny.

    Honestly this is Pixar’s best work. So immersive, so prophetic, so pretty.
