This week Andres takes a look at two movies, “King of Staten Island” & Promising Young Woman”.
First King of Staten Island: The King of Staten Island feels like a therapy session for lead and co-writer Pete Davidson. Audiences are able to empathize easily with the classic Apatow schlub archetype because of how closely the story relates to Davidson’s real life. The film has a clear character arc and some hilarious witty dialogue between its leads and supporting cast.. Worth the watch.
Secondly, Promising Young Woman: A film that lingers long after the credits. Its bright colors and incredibly dark tones is a mix that tricks the audience into having a false sense of security. Amazing lead performance by Mulligan that makes her recent absence on screen the more unclear. A thrilling revenge film that has a lot to say, and surely will spark conversation among its viewers. A must see film.
