The Lost City of Z. James Gray. 2016. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
On paper I hate this. Fuck a hero's journey glorifying western imperialism. Yet, I loved it. The movie felt, to me, like a genuine meditation on the strange mystery of life. We find ourselves in places, with people, motivated by desire, motivated by responsibility. It's all very strange. This captures it. It isn't deep, but it is impactful. Hit me like a stoned epiphany that you never quite let go of.
