Well done with interesting themes regarding independence and personal agency. However, it seems a little thin and familiar. Harmless high quality entertainment for the kiddies.
Triggering. The story is told in a series of six scenes or various stages of meltdown. Moss' performance is something to see. It may remind you of Gena Rowlands in A Woman Under the Influence, another harrowing film about mental breakdown. Alas, this film has the same problems: it's unendurable, triggering and appalling. One wonders how realistic this portrayal is and what exactly the filmmaker is trying to do other than showcase the lead actor. One wonders why the director put this actor through this experience.One wonders why. It's not entertaining and it's not insightful. It comes off as sadism played for the camera with no other purpose. This is the same problem Cassavettes often found himself in as well. It's a vision, but is it worthy?
Pretty uneven for Jarmusch. There are a lot of unresolved threads in the end. The quirky deadpan humor is intact, but the Jarmusch affection for weirdness is barely there. The fact that this is a naked political allegory of Trump's America weakens it. Jarmusch is generally adept at making profoundly political statements in his films, but this one is just too blunt.
Uneven TV quality project. It has a few sharp scenes but seems too occupied with it's own devotion to cliches it comes across as self parody.
This film has its moments, but the tropes and cliches are piled on thick. And wig budget must have been enormous.
