The Oath Reviews
But forrealz, I can't decide if this would be better/less stressful or just seem completely ridiculous if so much of it didn't hit so close to home.
but it kind of shows what could happen and it was also funny
I really like Ike Barinholtz
so I would highly recommend this movie just have to watch it with an open mind
A family that's gathering for Thanksgiving is also ripped apart by this political turmoil. Unfortunately, as I see it, most of the dark humor here falls very flat or is just mean-spirited, and do we really need a crude expletive here every other sentence?
I thought the last half of the movie contained enough tension to keep my interest, but overall this film was a disappointment. I will say the political points it espouses may be closer in some ways than we think.
Should have read reviews
Tiffany haddish u sold out with this one
Dude Ike has major issues not understanding how to write or direct in today´┐ 1/2 1/2 world. Straight to redbox shouldn´┐ 1/2 1/2 1/2(TM)t even be this bad. Movie literally makes no sense to be made. Stop funding crap hollyweird
That said, even though the film does an admirable and impassioned defense of free speech and denunciation of creeping fascist violence (though not violence per se), the politics never cut any deeper than the most basic civil liberties, never touching upon economic justice or corruption. But that's not what the film is after, for as political a film as this is, it is less a screed for revolution than a satire of self-care maintaining day to day normalcy and modes of #resistance in an age of deplorable nationalism. While the pace does lose steam during the third act, when fresh hell breaks loose and chaos reigns, the nonsensical mayhem is as much a storytelling crutch as a reflection of our contemporary political aporia---how else will our unbridled anger end but like that? can we imagine any other ending? can we imagine an end at all? That feeling of indecision and impotence, while maybe not narratively satisfying in the way Hollywood usually spoon feeds us pure fantasy, is nonetheless the film's smartest and most uncomfortable choice.
Sadly, it´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)s 93 minutes I´┐ 1/2 1/2(TM)ll never get back.
