Takes a character that’s not very interesting and tells her story in a way that makes us care.
The film is stacked with award-worthy performances at every turn, but this is Adam Driver’s pièce de résistance.
This could’ve been something truly special if Waititi didn’t insist on spending the majority of his time winking at the audience.
If you take away only one thing from this review, make it this: you will not be disappointed with this movie.
The plot is thin, the characters shallow and stereotypical, and the laughs nonexistent.
The movie is a visually slick dazzler, an intense, lavishly structured, virtual feast for your eyes.
