Was surprised by how lively and entertaining the first hour or so of Don't Worry Darling was, as I went into it with sub-basement expectations -- said expectations were met by the film's nonsensical final act which undoes most of its good will, but it does coast on Florence Pugh's charms and some ace production design for a long while. Casting is also pretty ace... well save Harry Styles, who has yet to prove to me he's anything but an elfin music-video figurine. Styles works well enough for that first hour when the film doesn't ask much of him -- as the plot reveals get wackier he leaves Pugh dangling in the wind, as does the rest of the film. But Flo's great and I can't say I was ever bored. It's no Truman Show (which it very much wants to be) but it's unfortunately no WTF-fest like Serenity either. Ultimately middling!

Enjoyed it thoroughly. And Dear Hollywood, PLEASE STOP TRYING TO MAKE HARRY STYLES AN ACTOR! HE IS NOT AN ACTOR! HE CAN NOT ACT!
Jason you only didn't like it because it is about you... truth hurts <3
