Just finished watching this, and man, was I impressed with it. A really good movie, from start to finish, it is one of the rare ones that I have watched recently that has kept me in my seat, watching from start to finish, with no breaks. Really well acted, and written, with a good cast, and a strong and emotional story. I will definitely be watching this one again.

such a disappointment

Things We Lost in the Fire

“Remove the interracial marriage and diversity of the cast and Things We Lost in the Fire wouldn’t have looked out of place as a women’s picture tearjerker from the studio era. It’s a full-blooded melodrama that alternates between forlorn, cloistered emotional spaces and facile, artificial operatic set pieces. Your mileage will vary, and even mine did, someone who is generally a fan of this kind of thing.   What’s so damn frustrating about Things We Lost in the Fire is how it wants to operate in both worlds, and ends up becoming some weird hybrid creature that’s generally good but more fascinating for its oddities and unintentional camp. I mean, this is a film about a widow and the junkie best friend forming a strange bond during their grief while deploying cringe lines and soa” read more
