Admittedly fine line between playful and hollow pastiche, but I found moods, colors, and sounds more engaging than not
Like a fun party tune. Luscious surface appeals but smart, too, about fag/hag rivalries and pastiche as earnest gesture.
I give Dolan more credit than some have for how well he brings this off, but few would allege that he's risking or innovating much.
