Yesterday ★★★

Easily the best of the music-fantasy/biopic films inundating theaters recently, Yesterday actually has some interesting thematic stuff behind at least the first half of the film regarding what makes a song successful. Unfortunately, the second half delves deeper into a surface level relationship drama that lacks any punch and culminates in one hell of a disappointing climax... It does have some classic Danny Boyle digital, canted angle, super saturated shots elevating the largely bland material, but other than that, it really was quite the let down...
