Dual Mania (2021)
best movie i've ever seen.
While it doesn't offer any answers, it both thrills and makes you think.
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
