"Why is a baker like a beggar?" - First Cow (2020)

Directed by Kelly Reichardt, First Cow begins with a modern-day scenario and then, shifts back to the past. The contrast has been beautifully depicted. The cinematography is good and uses an aspect ratio of 4:3. Every frame is worth watching. The monotonous shots of the little creatures, handshakes, cookies are some of the few among others that are worth noting. The sound mixing too deserves the mention here. The modern-day sounds in contrast with the old America are worth noticing.

John Magaro (Cookie) acted brilliantly. The emotions of friendship and passion are beautifully portrayed by him. Orion Lee (King Lu) too gave a good performance. The humble persona came naturally to him. The casts are perfect. The costumes are also worth noticing in this film. It's amazing to see the costumes made out of bamboo.

The plot is simple and direct. However, this movie is about enjoying the scenery and the societal function of that period. Their way of interaction and talking is worth noting. Watching this movie will make you wonder how such a simple plot can be so aesthetically pleasing, and gradually grows on you. The climax is beautiful and satisfying. It's like they paused forever.

Sic_final_verdict: Simplistic. One of the best movies of 2020. A must watch.

Sic_score: 8.3⭐/10 Rotten Tomatoes: 95% (critic's score) / 60% (audience score)
