Allegedly a filmmaker. Actually more of an actor.
I like most of the movies that I watch because I like movies.
whose world is this?
A truly interminable film. I feel like JK Simmons Whiplash because this script is rushing and dragging. Florence Pugh, queen of overacting! Harry Styles, king of having a really big and adorable frowny face when he’s trying to seem mad and upset. Olivia Wilde, grand duchess of saying way more about herself than she probably meant to. Slog!
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

Not gonna make any friends with this one, huh?
This thing collapses under the weight of its own self-conscious quirkiness and randomness early, and it never ever recovers. There aren’t characters here, just thinly sketched vessels for visual gags. And oh, what visual gags we have here, extended bits that completely derail the movie throughout, with the emotional climax being intercut with hot dog fingers and raccoons. It’s a truly monumental feat of hat-on-a-hatting…
