Despite lacking the freshness of 2016 feature, the sequel is funny, energetic, and determined not to take itself seriously.
Showing great restraint and refusing to demonize the closed community in which the story transpires, director Sebastian Lelio has tackled the age-old tale of forbidden love and its implications.
A recognition that historical politics can be just as bizarre and absurd as the modern flavor.
The movie touches on issues of duality and psychology but often uses shock tactics to shake things up.
The movie may not be the second coming of "Heat" but it’s good enough to turn up the temperature to “warm.”
Almost seems too bizarre to be true, even though it is - an inadvertent success story that illustrates there’s more than one way to stardom.
Everyone will be awed by Gary Oldman’s uncanny transformation and the way he brings back to life an icon who has been dead for more than 50 years.
