One of the many criticisms I keep hearing about this movie is that it's much longer than it needs to be. I'm unsure why so many film directors are unable to keep their movies under two hours. Maybe it's an ego thing. Nearly every movie nowadays is about 20-30 minutes too long and I find myself editing the movie in my head, thinking, "this scene wasn't needed" or "axing this subplot would have lessened the sluggish pacing." Do directors think their film won't be taken seriously if it's under two hours? Lady Bird is the only recent movie I can think of where I didn't find myself looking at my watch during the last 30 minutes. I just looked up its running time and it was only 94 minutes long. That didn't seem to hurt its awards potential though.
