Eighth Grade
« on: July 27, 2018, 10:29:41 PM »
I adored this movie. Funny, touching, and brutal. This sweet kid, I wanted to give her a hug all throughout (Elsie Fisher is remarkable, btw). My internal monologue was an endless cycle of, "Oh just wait til' college, girl, you don't even know! You're gonna flourish!" etc...

I was in eighth grade 2000-2001. Dear God.

Definitely one of the best of the year. Bo Burnham is 27. If anyone needs me I'm just gonna kill myself momentarily, be right back.

This was very good. If you've seen the trailer I feel like you've seen 90% of what the movie has to offer, but it's still really well executed and made me remember that time of life that I'd blocked out. Reminded me of the Atlanta ep from last season with the bootleg jersey. ANXIETY.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.
