"The Whale" (2022) Review

    Spoiler Warning    

    Jesus, if this wasn't the most Oscar-bait-y movie I've ever seen.

    Sure, I do think that Brendan Fraser did deserve his Oscar for his performance, but The Whale is quite melodramatic at points.

    It is quite pretentious and full of itself, too, with the 4:3 aspect ratio and the forced conflict of Charlie leaving his wife for a man.

    And that ending, it's really trying to be thought-provoking. In reality, it just feels like a flat finish.

    I was gonna write a joke for this review, but I really wanted to talk about this film. It just rubbed me the wrong way.
