"It's a parallel universe espionage thriller with J.K. Simmons in a double role. If you're not aroused yet, I don't know what to tell you."

"I don't know why it had to marry the Lovecraftian story to an allegory of interpersonal alienation or something to that effect; it seems to me an annoyingly "writerly" thing to do, and entirely unnecessary besides when the former is more than enough to stand on its own. But it's ultimately not a big deal, because you could watch this on mute and it would still be at least a 7. Thank you Garland for giving me my crazy colors fix while I hold out for the JoJo pt. 5 anime."
|9 T10||Das Boot (1985) - Mar 26, 2018
"Even at 300 minutes, some of the crew are characterized only in the broadest strokes (there's the angry guy, the religious guy, etc.) but it matters little when I could drown in this film with its lived-in sets and its facial expressions that convey the extremes of human emotion. Every frame is dripping with perspiration, you feel the crew's anxiety as your own when the ship's hull groans under increasing pressure. It's a five-hour movie about watching beards grow, and not a second too long."

"It's clever but more low-key than I'd like; A close comparison is Justified but SP is neither as funny nor as intense. The cast lacks a true standout but it's loaded with likeable characters that subvert expectations in small ways. I appreciate how it hints at a secret world of conmen and thieves without going full comic-book about it. On the whole it's not quite *there* yet but it's a solid foundation and I'm curious to see how s02 builds upon it, especially with Yost taking over the reins."
