Much Ado About Nothing
I remain dubious and hungry: the movie globally lacks of achievement and seems unfinished.
Pros: the sensitivity of Xavier Dolan, the interpretation of the actors, the music, the photography, ...
Cons (only 1 actually, but it's almost crippling): the hubbub! I have the feeling that Xavier Dolan tries to artificially fill the relative emptyness around an epistolary relationship modestly reduced to a secret garden with a kaleidoscopic narrative, fuzzily alternating between Rupert and John on the one hand, the present and the past on the other hand.
To be watched again in a decade or two, with another look.
