This was the first movie I've seen in a theater since the pandemic. It was great!

Wow--incredible, trashy/pulpy in the best way. I'd had a crush on Katy O'Brian since seeing her in The Mandalorian, and she and Kristen Stewart burn holes in the screen. Not sure if I've ever seen Ed Harris play a villain, but he was great in this as well.

I'll watch anything A24 puts out, but the cinematography on this one's great. I especially loved all the shots of the starlit sky above the gym at night, making the whole scene look somehow like a one-act play/diorama.

That aesthetic really comes into play during the last few scenes of the movie -- excellent art direction to bring that theme around full circle in the end.
