A Simple Favor. Paul Feig. 2018. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
LOVE movies that ruthlessly critique a thing while simultaneously paying a loving homage... my go-to example has always been SLC Punk's treatment of punk youth culture... but this, a deconstruction of noir tropes (incest, insurance fraud, and twins, oh my!) that's also a fun-as-hell interrogation of our collective darknesses, knocks it out of the park. If repeat viewings yield more riches I'll upgrade to FIVE STARS.
