This was a hell of a directorial debut. It would seem to present itself as a pretty simple story of father and daughter on vacation together. Using the camcorder footage, and bookend scenes, it is a memory piece, and by the end, it is much more than it appeared first. Subtle hints throughout and answers are never fully given, but very effective. Really emotional.

Mescal and Corio give fantastic performances.

This probably has one, if not the best, use of Queen and Bowie's Under Pressure that I've ever seen.

This is now available for purchase on digital. Rental will January 17th. I know most people won't pay $20 for a digital purchase, but I am just putting it on people's radar. I think this is one of the best films of the year. It has been on many "best of" lists. Wells has won many best directorial debut awards, Corio breakthrough performance awards, and Mescal's name in lead actor discussions. I think A24 kind of dropped the ball on its release.

This is the kind of movie that devastates you in retrospect, the more you think about it. Very powerful. And the second incredible child performance I saw this week, next to "The Quiet Girl."

I wanted to see this but it came and went quickly.

There's probably a better thread to mention this, but my local AMC has TERRIBLE showtimes lately. Most night shows are at 6:00pm-something, it's ridiculous.
