Joy ★★★

JOY is disjointed, full of questionable (or nonexistent) narrative logic, overly long, and often without discernible dramatic stakes. Such is the power of the moving image coordinated with the right music that it is also implausibly (yet intermittently) moving, shimmering with an intense beauty (skin-deep though it may be), and full of the stuff of dreams (even if not from dreams one wishes to stay inside of forever).
