    ★★★★½

    I laughed, I got choked up, I left with wholesome feelings! Impeccable chemistry. You'd never be able to tell this was Wilde's feature debut. This thing's confident as hell.

    ★★★★

    Not emotionally ready to revisit the masterpiece so I'll watch this nifty doc instead. Highlights:

    - You mean motherfucking Rian Johnson was casually under pressure of directing one of the biggest movies ever in the most holy grail of film franchises all the while being endlessly followed by the doc crew? I would have just cried in a corner wtf legends only

    - The casino planet is filled with a bunch of weird creatures and great extras layered in extravagant…
