It’s been 5 years since I first saw this so I definitely noticed some flaws this time around, like how the satire is sometimes hit or miss, but that doesn’t change the fact that this is still a surreal, complex, brilliant and challenging character study that examines what’s behind the façade of an actor. Also, it’s still painful to know that Michael Keaton was ROBBED of that Oscar in 2015. Edward Norton and Emma Stone are also amazing.
