  • Bravo grounds her story in a vision of Florida that feels genuinely dangerous and strange in ways that only Florida can, and pulls great performances from her cast, who are all-in on this crazy vision.

  • Turns out Twitter might really have been the ideal platform for this anecdote.

  • For all the movie's digital pings and palm-tree lunacy, there's real humor and humanity threaded through the script, and a point of view that feels far outside that kind of nihilist boys club.

  • Social-media feeds can embolden subjective observations that don't tell the whole truth, but that's exactly what makes this particular example such a perfect fit for its adventurous director.

  • But as funny and ferocious as much of "Zola" is, it's let down by an increasingly haphazard script that doesn't know how to either sustain its humor or negotiate its turn into darker territory - and so, disappointingly, it waffles.

  • Zola wouldn't work without such a great ensemble; much like the internet phenomenon it stems from, the magic is in the delivery.
