Quotes

Robert: This is really bad. Once your face is in their system they got you. Fines, 401k, home equity. But maybe you want all that. I don't know. Me, I prefer to just skim.
Old Dolio: So do I.
Robert: Do you? Oh, that's interesting. Because most people want to be Kajillionaires. That's the dream. That's how they get you hooked. Hooked on sugar. Hooked on caffeine. Ha,ha,ha. Cry, cry, cry.

Kajillionaire Review
3 October 2020 | by theredskySee all my reviews

I was really surprised that I came out of this film really loving it. The trailers didn't do a whole lot to impress me but I checked it out anyway and it was worth it. This has some of the best writing and lead performances of the year although not my favorite. Miranda July definitely knows what she is doing here. Her directing and writing feel so personal and intimate and she is able to craft one of the most unique stories of the year. There were a couple of slow bits but that didn't bug me too much but overall, the story was fascinating and engaging. Mostly because the characters here are very well developed and performed. Evan Rachel Wood and Gina Rodriguez were amazing here and I thought their characters were great. The parents played by Richard Jenkins and Debra Winger were also great too. Each has their own motivations and personality that is separate from everyone else and unique. The film was also very well shot and edited and the humor mostly hits. For a comedy, I didn't get a ton of laughs out of it but there were a lot times where I did chuckle. Even though some of the comedy didn't hit, it succeeded very well at all of its emotional hits. Go check this out when you get the chance because it's not getting enough attention.
