A 666-Character Review of ‘Nancy’
Nancy is a subtle look into loneliness, and the strive for human connections and relationships. A mega-slow burn, created in a way that’s packed full of desperate emotion, bleak landscapes, and a very somber tone. There’s a hope and longing for everything to work out, because you want to see these characters end up happy. Exceptional performances from a solidly written script really drive this movie, and allow it to become the dramatic force it ends up being. Overall though, I was left feeling a little bit unfulfilled. It’s engaging, but it’s pace, combined with lack of events, definitely makes this film seem a tad stretched out. I will say however, Nancy does feature my favorite shot of the year; a long pan in which the aspect ratio changes from 1.37:1 to 1.85:1. If you blink, you’ll miss it!
