I don't have Netflix so I'm glad they also released this theatrically, even if only for a week. There are some films best seen on the big screen and this is one of them. I fear that folks watching at home may not give it the chance it deserves, since it's character-driven and you need to pay attention to how their stories about intertwined. I would have given it five stars if some of the storylines hadn't disappeared.
The acting is excellent and I put this as one of the best movies of the year. Be warned that it can evoke a visceral reaction and there is one particularly tough scene.
Being close to Dr. Goodall in age, I knew most of her story already. However, the film was a good reminder of how unusual it was for her to go to Africa when she did and to appreciate the chance Dr. Leaky took on allowing her to go.
I never saw The Lobster and this film didn't inspire me to do so. I honestly thought it should have been more twisted and realistic than it was.
Unlike Elle from last year, which was REALLY twisted and which I couldn't stop thinking about for days, I never gave this movie another thought after I left the theater. The story was too unbelievable and sort-of stupid. I gave it three stars for the acting, but that was about it.
This film was a welcome respite during a week I saw The Killing of a Sacred Deer, A Bad Mom's Christmas and Blade Runner 2049.
i didn't know anything about it other than it was two parallel stories from different eras, but I was able to follow it just fine. It was refreshing not listening to foul language, explosions, etc. for a couple of hours. I wasn't a huge fan of Carol, but I enjoyed this film.
