I tagged along at the last minute to the Venice Film Festival. This was one of the films we were able to see on short notice. Sorry to say, I was underwhelmed. I love Matt, and he was brilliantly scary, but the story line, even though I knew it was satire, seemed like it was trying too hard to be more than just entertainment. But all was not lost, I loved The Shape of Water, and absolutely adored Charlie Plummer in Lean on Pete.
