Of course it was a matter of time before such opinions start to pop up, there will always be the people who will (choose to) interpret the movie this way.


I feel like the vast majority of people, especially the types who are not extremely-online, just will not care about this. Most dudes, I would imagine, will be like “hell yeah I wish that happened to me when I was 15.”

My main issue is the inevitable discourse to start before too many people watch the film and be able to make up their own minds about it.

The famously fussy Slant Magazine gave it 4/4 (the first American film they do so in over two years). While trying to avoid getting spoiled as much as I can, I think it's a great read.

One of the few mainstream reviews I was awaiting. This is great personally because the taste of slant critics strongly aligns with mine for most reviews! Looking forward to Richard Brody's and Manohla Dargis's takes.

I have no idea about Dargis, but I would guess that Brody liked it.

How is it statutory rape if they dont sleep together.

I love people are call watching films with rape murder genocide but they only get up in arms when its something like this.  Makes me laugh considering it's a fictional thing.

This is good but Brody is kinda unpredictable. While he loved Phantom thread and The Master he did not dig IV.  So we will see.

From WILBWITNESS NEWS, photos from the FAT BERNIE'S PINBALL PALACE promotional space next to the Village Theatre in Westwood.

Free Pinball.  Free T's at the door (one per customer).  Nothing for sale.  Authentic (or at least authentic-looking) decorations based on the art direction in the film.  Open to the public until...probably until the wide release in late December.

Does anyone who has seen the film know if that is Greenwood’s score playing in the second trailer?

Somehow I don't think so?  I don't remember it in the film, but I'll have another chance to check at the end of the week.  eward might know?

I don't think so, don't recall it being in the film either.

Why even give this asinine shit the time of day? That guy goes no deeper than "good/bad", "like/dislike", "umm yes/umm no".

Offered because I continue to wonder how much of reactions like this will get traction.
