It only flies high thanks to its incredibly strong cast, and although the narrative misses dramatic beats, still packs an emotional punch while adding to the conversation about legalised euthanasia.
'How to Build a Girl' is an engaging yet average film, but will perhaps disappoint those hoping for something more from Beanie Feldstein's next move.
A well-crafted movie can bring us closer to nature and inspire us to protect it. Despite boasting some scarily relevant themes, the lumpy screenplay of '2067' makes it hard to recommend.
While it may play out like a psychological thriller at times, it's a witty and fun film that may lack originality, but has plenty of energy and memorable moments that make for a confident debut.
While unlikely to revolutionise the wuxia genre, the film is a satisfying mystery with a handful of sequences that seem almost musical in their graceful choreography and composition.
For an emotional, moving and sensitive narrative, this film generally hits the right notes, and even when it doesn't, the calibre of performances make it a worthwhile viewing experience.
While the film has a few hiccups, the package as a whole comes across as a truly moving experience that challenges the audience's morals with really thought-provoking dialogue.
It's not a black-and-white narrative with a good guy, a bad guy, and a clear-cut scheme. It's a raw yet rich exploration of the messiness of human relationships, their beauty and depravity.
