More Vanessa Kirby is just a good thing, in and of itself.

Unfortunately, I doubt we'll be seeing any of these things anytime soon.

I'd love for it to end up on Criterion because Kirby gives my favorite performance of 2020 (her or Boseman, either way, a Netflix win), but I feel it's more "up in the air" on Netflix's part compared to some of the other 2020 movies I think are definitely Criterion bound.

Saw the movie opening day last week and was floored by it from beginning to end. Definitely going to be a tough watch for people at home (in theaters, the opening half hour was utterly agonizing) but a very powerful story about grief and growth. As indicated in the first half of the post, all the early word about Kirby has been spot on.

Superb movie. But unless it gets nominated for an Oscar this year, I'm going to consider my first movie of 2021.

This movie had great performances all around but did it bother anyone else that Ellen Burstyn was too old to play Vanessa Kirby’s mother? There’s a 56 year age gap between the two of them, not to mention her mom actually tells her a story about being in the Holocaust. No person today under the age of 50 has a parent who was involved in the Holocaust, especially not a 30-something. This would have played better had Burstyn instead been written as a grandmother who raised her.

Jeez.
[Show spoiler]The pre-title sequence
has got to be one of the most harrowing ones in recent times. OTOH,
[Show spoiler]the ending
feels like a cop-out. Why didn't the movie
[Show spoiler]end one scene earlier
? It'd have been perfect.

Along similar lines, there was the roll of film. It seemed rather odd that anyone these days would use a film camera unless they're 'hipsters' which this couple is definitely not. I thought for awhile that this was taking place in the 1990s or so but there were modern computers in her office.

Kinda took me out when Kirby went to the film shop and was allowed in the developing room so she can see the picture form for dramatic effect. Although not entirely unlikely, it would be really hard to find an inhouse photo processing shop that does 8x10s the old fashion way. Why the Shia character would choose that instead of digital is strange.

This movie was conventional in several ways, and I feel like some of the more tear-jerking scenes were unearned. It also seemed too much like a play in several scenes? And I feel like I get what they were trying to do with LaBeouf's character, but he juuuust misses the mark.

Still though, this movie MADE ME CRY LIKE A *****. God, even that one scene where
[Show spoiler]she leaks when she sees a child she doesn't know made me on the verge of tears. I'm not a woman, I dont even know about the excruciating experience of childbirth, but I empathized so much with Kirby's character.
Jesus, this movie wrecked me.

I mean, I feel like the filmmakers included it based on how
[Show spoiler]optimistic or pessimistic the viewer's worldview is. They can interpret it literally or metaphorically.
I would've preferred it if they swapped
[Show spoiler]the 2nd last scene (where she spills her baby's ashes over the recently constructed bridge) and had that be the final scene instead
, but that's because I usually find more depressing endings more poignant and metaphorically fulfilling for the story.
[Show spoiler]I won't judge them for leaving it as it is though, it's fun to discuss with others whether they give the ending a metaphorical or literal take.

You know, compared to Mank and i'm thinking of ending things. I'd say you got a fair point. Not saying I believe those films are better if I try and judge them from an objective standpoint (I do think ITOET is much better than this or Mank though), but they're more 'culturally relevant/significant', I guess.

What other Netflix films that came out last year would you think are more Criterion-bound? From what I can see there's a good list:
• Kirsten Johnson's Dick Johnson Is Dead
I'm No Longer Here
• Antonio Campos' The Devil All the Time
• George C. Wolfe's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom
• Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7
• Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods
Athlete A
The 40-Year-Old Version
• Alan Yang's Tigertail
The Half of It
• Edoardo Ponti's The Life Ahead
Nobody Knows I'm Here
• Joe Mantello's The Boys in the Band
• Jeff Baena's Horse Girl
• Also Ramin Bahrani's The White Tiger although I think that's been pushed to this year.
There was also a bunch of potential Oscar-bait that crashed and burned really hard I think. Dee Rees' The Last Thing He Wanted, Ron Howard's Hillbilly Elegy, Ryan Murphy's The Prom, George Clooney's The Midnight Sky and Ben Wheatley's Rebecca, off the top of my head.

Pretty sure I mentioned this in the "Mank" thread, but the four I think are likely because their directors are established Criterion names are "Mank", "Da 5 Bloods", "i'm thinking of ending things" and "Dick Johnson is Dead". I could see "Pieces of a Woman" going there eventually, but we'll see.

Got to this last night, and wasn't a fan. The opening 30 minutes are tremendously engrossing, but the quality drops quite a bit after that. What starts off feeling enticing and endearing eventually turns into a hollow, messy story that doesn't capture it's atmosphere or emotions well, and has some dialogue and performances that feel like they were pulled straight from a soap opera. The only constant quality the film has is Vanessa Kirby, who is brilliant throughout.
