Did You Know?

Trivia

Talking about the aspect ratio in which the film was shot (close to 1:1), cinematographer Lorenzo Hagerman said that, while being a beautiful ratio to work with, it also managed to help in the framing of Jeff Goldblum (6'4", 1.94m) and Tye Sheridan (5'7", 1.71m) in their scenes together, without it looking funny.

Nice to look at.
9 October 2019 | by teachermarkthailandSee all my reviews

It seemed like this movie was all the celluloid that was on the cutting room floor, neatly assembled because it would have been a waste to simply throw them away.

The photography is delicate and exquisite, and Jeff Goldblum is as magnetic and as quirky as always. But it's not enough, not nearly enough, to carry the movie.
