    Heaven Knows What

    ★★★

    I've come across so many people like the characters in this movie. The Safdie brothers nailed the authenticity of the day-to-day life of a junkie.

    Every character is absolutely incipid, but feel true to life. So even though half the dialogue is screeched, you can still find humanity in them.

    ★★

    ★★★

    I really wanted to love this, but I only loved half of it. I don't mean first half and second half. I found the film had amazing set-ups, but underwhelming pay offs. So my enjoyment went through highs and lows. Mostly the former.

    The mystery presented is a great one. Why are all these people at this hotel, and what are they hiding? To be honest, the answers aren't all that interesting or satisfying.
