An absurd but brilliant political satire that critiques capitalism, neoliberalism (with Matt Damon's character playing the role of the common well-meaning but completely clueless

I would like to especially applaud Hong Chau's performance as Ngoc Lan Tran, a disabled Vietnamese refugee who flees Vietnam only to find that life in…
A white man attempts to critique a white supremacist, eugenicist cult that he has created entirely on his own... major self flagellation energy. Everyone who I said I didn't like this movie to said that I just "didn't get it". It's not that I don't get it, Ari Aster just does not have the range that he thinks he does. The only upside is that this movie is beautiful.
