    ★★★★★

    It's got superb pacing and one hell of a central performance. The moments of both tension and humanity and played pitch perfectly. It's one shot gimick is also expertly pulled off and I genuinely don't know how they managed it so well. It does also take me out of the film though at certain points when I'm trying to work out how they managed it but when some action starts I'm right back in it again. I also really liked the 'guest appearance' casting, Andrew Scott being the best of them

    ★★★★½

    This movie is preposterously beautiful. I had no idea Garfield had a performance as powerful as that in him but he is beyond amazing in this. The rest of the cast as just superb as well.
    As a person who doesn't have a religion this film was an absolute education on how religion can be incredibly empowering in the face of adversity but can also be a harmful crutch that is used in difficult situations to try and get through…

    ★★★★½

    A haunting look at a bunch of people just trying to make something of themselves before the inevitable end comes rushing up to meet them. Feels like a very personal movie to scorsese for those reasons and he helms it wonderfully. Amazing performances as well although I don't quite know if the deaging is completely believable

    Waititis best film yet. His unfiltered artistic vision can be felt in every second of this film. Every member of the cast is just brilliant and bring to life this quirky and emotional story of identity. I cried once out of sadness and once out of joy, what more can you ask for
