★★★★ review by Marian on Letterboxd
i really can't complain too much about a movie that has lea seydoux dancing to the numa numa song in dolphin shorts
★★★★½ review by Eli Hayes on Letterboxd
Less of a journey/more compact Dolan but just as compelling as the rest of his filmography; a powerful investigation of familial dysfunction and the inability to communicate in the face of stressful or foreign situations. With that being said, I'm honestly surprised that this family didn't start chopping up and cannabilizing one another. MVP: Vincent Cassel.

"you're right. I don't understand you. but I love you. no one will take that away from me"
I can see why people didn't seem to like this as much as other dolan's films, it can be completely overwhelming at times, but I think that's exactly what xavier was going for. the cast is so good too. I personally loved it!

Xavier Dolan's love for cheesy songs is something I will always be into
★★★★ review by Wes on Letterboxd
a xavier dolan movie with marion cotillard AND lea seydoux??? excuse me but where has this movie been all my life??
anyways, yeah. xavier dolan does family dysfunction like no other. the moment where Grimes' song Genesis dissolved into the scene and haunted it from then on is one im going to remember forever. that last shot too...
