Just spent nearly an hour typing up my thoughts on the new film, but unfortunately forum logged out before I could post it and now it’s gone… oh well.
Anyway, the new film. Amazing lighting and sound, story is OK nothing amazing, characters seem kind of underdeveloped or flat (especially Ryan Gosling) though that may be just a stylistic thing. Overall I enjoyed the new sequel mostly for the same reasons as the old: amazing aesthetics. I don’t understand charges of sexism against the new film either, as I feel the whole film is in large part a critique against objectification of others.
