Colossal (2017) Review

Alright, so I originally saw this movie at TIFF several months ago and I pretty much hated it. I went in expecting one thing and got something completely different.
Upon seeing it again, Colossal is fantastic. This movie is brutal. At times it's actually pretty hard to watch. There's some very dark shit in this film. This movie is essentially about alcoholism, mental illness, anger management, abusive relationships, broken dreams. There is some comedy to lighten things up and it works, but man this is a heavy handed flick below the surface.
Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis give outstanding performances. Both of them play incredibly flawed characters and they completely knock it out of the park. Very impressed with them. Easily Jason's best performance to date. 

Rating: 4.5/5
