    such a p(r)etty little thing. aesthetical rigour and filmic accuracy. it's all so perfect: the material, film stock and footage blending into each other, Portmans accent, even JFK looking like a clone of the former president. perfect lighting, colours, music (Mica Levis score being wonderfully sumptuous). also perfect: the meta-discourse. people only have to say the best about the production (the imdb trivia page is somehow shocking in its utterly positive vibe).

Hoyte van Hoytema can at least get a little playful here and there with some fizzy-whizzing abstractions of nuclear reactions and floating star sightings. Ludwig Göransson is giving his best Hans Zimmer impersonation, finding…
