DEATH BY MANCHESTER BY THE SEA

DEATH BY MANCHESTER BY THE SEA
 
With the exception of Casey Affleck's exceptional portrayal of a broken man attempting to do the right thing while no longer having the emotional capacity to do so, Manchester By The Sea did not live up to the hype surrounding it in my opinion.
 
Yes, Affleck's performance is great, but by its very nature it is a one note performanceand that note is a constant funeral dirge. If you feel like killing yourself after seeing this film (or Arrival, for that matter), immediately enter the adjacent theater and watch Sing repeatedly to bring the smile back to your face...
