Getting a black comedy vibe from this.
Looks great, I'm in.
This looks awesome
Yeah, I'm in
This looks pretty good. The story is nuts and the presentation looks very interesting.
Dying to see this
I really wanna see this! I didn't realize it was already out!
only NYC and LA I think now, and then January everywhere else, it's so frustrating trying to come up with when I'll actually be seeing it
really like the movie poster for this
Can't wait to catch this
thought this was spectacular, woah
Truly an incredible film and story. Fairly straight forward but the performances really sold it, no need to reinvent the wheel.
Yup. Just finished it and loved it.
I'm kind of surprised this is being received so well. It looks like such a shameless David O. Russell rip-off. I guess I should MoviePass it.
This is WAY better than anything O. Russell has done in the last decade.
Not commenting on the quality of his films, just saying that this pretty blatantly apes the visual aesthetic of his last three films. Like, to the point that I thought he directed it the first time I saw the trailer.
I dunno. I haven't seen Joy, but this didn't remind of Silver Linings Playbook in the slightest... and American Hustle ripped off the aesthetic of 1000 other things, so...
There are certain choices in I Tonya that might be borrowed from other filmmakers, but I didn't find it to be a copy cat of anyone in particular.
I actually quite liked this!
i'm trying to see more movies next year and this is on my list based on how everyone in here is responding
Highly recommended, it was totally absorbing/flew by, juggled the comic and tragic elements really well
I will say, I am wrestling with how much I enjoyed this vs. the things I find majorly problematic. The cheeky approach to domestic abuse in the beginning definitely made me rather uncomfortable.
As for the rest, I do think something as tragic as this story should be handled with sensitivity, but the film would be ineffective as it is if it took a different approach. If this was a fabricated story, I obviously would have no qualms with its depiction of the story, but since it’s not I feel much more conflicted. Ultimately, I enjoyed the film way more than I ever expected, even with my reservations. Margot Robbie is absolutely incredible in this, one of my favorite performances of the year.
I’m not sure how long this will stick with me or how long my positive reaction will last given my problems with it’s depiction, but I’m glad I gave this a fair chance.
