    If you’ve got a better plan for me, tell me...

    Dano’s directorial debut is an almost discomfortingly tame experience. Every shot is static and contained, giving rise to an inescapable sense of distress. the film so effectively articulates the feeling of being trapped within the center of a marital imbroglio without ever becoming an ostentatious display. instead, Wildlife is a taut portrait of desperation and destruction. as this marriage hastily approaches its demise like a raging wildfire, the audience, like Joe, is left to watch impotently.

    sure, watching rooney mara eat pie on the kitchen floor for 8 straight minutes is cool, but it’s nothing compared to delphine seyrig peeling potatoes and washing dishes for 3 1/2 hours

    i have this deep-seated aversion to mayonnaise and a few months back i pledged to my friends i would eat an entire jar of mayo in the unlikely scenario that green book wins best picture as i was so confident that it wouldn’t. this has been a giant miscalculation

    edit: here it is :/
