Demolition ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jean-Marc Vallee’s effective and stylish directing is the best thing in this film but it is undermined by the rather plodding and over-metaphorical and at times, frustratingly twee script. Visually clever use of fast-cut montages moves the story along briskly and provides us with the background and context for specific scenes succinctly in a heavy film that explores how his character copes after the death of his wife by dismantling or smashing things to smithereens and taking many, many showers. If nothing else, this film proves I will watch anything Jake Gyllenhaal’s in, especially if he takes a lot of showers.
