El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Watched 11 October 2019

I didn’t know how much I wanted this, just as much as I wasn’t expecting to cry in the end. Yet here we are.

It doesn’t escape the TV-to-film curse of feeling incomplete and slightly outside its comfort zone and somehow wrong. But taken as the missing Breaking Bad episode that time forgot, it’s absolutely flawless.

Yet I don’t think it would have worked had the show just included this back then as its final final episode. We needed the wait, and it was worth it.

About star ratings

My ratings are subjective. I’m not aiming for a perfect ranking of comparative artistic merit, just trying to represent how I feel about stuff. Here’s what they mean:

Personal favorite. I simply love it, warts and all.
Something special. Highly recommended.
Good, but unremarkable. I’ll probably forget about it.
A waste of time. Not recommended.
Practically insulting. Soulless garbage. (Rare!)
