Poor Things


So Emma Stone won the “Best Actress” Academy Award for “Poor Things?”

She should have won a goddamn MacArthur Genius Grant.

Seriously, I get that art is a subjective thing, but her performance in this stunningly original film was simply jaw-dropping. After debating whether to take in yet another two-and-a-half hour film, I decided to give it a shot and watched the thing last night. I sat there like a six-year-old seeing The Wizard of Oz for the first time, glued to my seat. Didn’t so much as get up to pee. Yeah, it’s that fucking good.

So, kudos to Director Yorgos Lanthimos (and everyone else who contributed to this). Each of you deserves all the credit you get for this unclassifiable masterpiece.

But Emma Stone? WTF!? This is a performance for the ages
