Perhaps in another year filled with more film options this would be a middle of the road film. But since I'm starved this year from the lack of films last year, I'll put this at the top of my list of movies seen so far.
I went into this movie not thinking I would be that interested. But not only did the unique take on the visuals delight and interest me, but the story did as well. The music was the cherry on top. A surprisingly sweet treat about the saddest parts of life.
I love Nolan movies, so I admit to coming into this movie with a bias. Seeing it in AMC Dolby Cinema didn't hurt either. But it's also shot perfectly with an excellent cast doing wonderful work. The story is hard to follow but immediately invites you to see it again and again to dig into all the tasty nuggets you overlooked or went over your head the first showing. I can't wait to own this one, and I hope to see it in theaters again before it's gone.
I don't understand why critics are dumping on this movie. Maybe it's because I haven't been to the theater in do long that I am happy just to be in the seat, but I thought it was great. I'm hoping this story line merges with Laura's story from Logan and we continue to see these characters in the future. I'm particularly interested in Moonstar and Rasputin but the whole "breakfast club" vibe I got from the whole group was pretty cool.
