This film can get 5 stars. It has what it takes. What’s to stop it from getting 5 stars? There are no special star chaperones safeguarding the star stash. But in fact it gets 4 stars. Why does it fail to get 5 stars, and get 4 instead, despite its steadfast intention to get 5 stars? For the same reason that other, ordinary films fail to get five stars despite their intentions: reviewer #2 is a bastard.
