MilesofSmiles 🐺’s review published on Letterboxd:
Not even Jeff Probst himself could snuff this movie’s 🔥 🔥 Holy shit Adèle Haenel!!!!!!! This movie is a slow burn but well worth it.
This is what watching movies is all about. New stories. Layered meanings. Brilliant acting. Beautiful colors. Multiple viewings definitely encouraged.
Most prominent metaphor (first viewing)
was the power of fire as a force that can give and take away life—a source of passion, chaos, and truth. Living one’s truth is so important, and if nothing else this is an honest portrait of humanity.
Glad I watched Avatar TLA before watching this for fire nation descriptions. Thanks uncle iroh
[time for this flying bison to go all Pentatonix around the fire now]
this makes my top 40 2019 films for sure!
