    It's probably more of a 3.5 as not all the jokes and and it's a tad too long, but the representation of gay dating/relationships is so specific and recognizable that I can't help but to have a soft spot for it because it made me feel seen.

    ★★★½

    What a tricky film. First and foremost, I'll say that the last act is electrifying, especially Robert DeNiro's big scene. It succeeded in making me feel things, as all art should do, but what I was feeling wasn't entirely pleasurable. This is more feature than bug, but where Heath Ledger's Joker (and his surrounding film) is more delicious and gleeful, Phoenix's is decidedly more off-putting and misanthropic, which makes it a tougher watch.

    I do appreciate how often Phillips shoots…

    A perfect film?

    It has the structure and tension of Burning and the socio-economic concerns of Shoplifters, but outshines both of those films. Not a moment is wasted - an incredible feat, given its +2hour running time. I don't even want to single out one part of the craft because everyone in front of and behind the camera is doing equally stellar work. Truly wild.
