    I firmly believe I’m the only person on Earth who’s ever seen this movie.

    ★★★★

    That the opening dance number tells you everything you need to know about all twenty characters makes it all the more powerful that the movie then spends the next 70 minutes ripping them apart. It’s A CHORUS LINE on LSD (literally) and the only thing these dancers hope they get is getting out alive. 

    The twink in the corset saying “fuck Selva, who is Selva?” about (a transcendent) Sofia Boutella is this movie’s “who is Adrienne Maloof in the world?”

    Huge POSSESSION teas when Sofia wails through the compound.

    ★★★½

    Taron with a receding hairline is gay rights. Bryce Dallas Howard’s old age makeup is straight rights. 

    Thrilling set pieces for the musical numbers but the connective tissue is a little tough. Taron is a star. 

    I would happy to be the SAG member that got to blow Richard Madden.
