It felt so casual. Jude Law no emotion and literally could have not been in the film. Wright managed to make the entire scale of the film seem minimal and unimportant despite its efforts to sweep us in.

I guess I just loved the spectacle of it. I thought it was beautiful and I actually liked Jude Law lol.

Eaux.

I thought Jude Law was one of the best parts. Karenin is a very reserved kind of character and idk. I was surprised by how much Jude Law's performance made me intereted in him.

And I liked that the scale was minimal because it was almost completely set in that theater setting because like, idk. The story is about the drama of this small part of Russian society and society is performative and it's about being watched and watching other people. Like it's NOT a story about big worldwide drama and global implications. It's the small tragedy of a few people in Russian society, so I liked that it felt small.

Don't get me wrong, I liked Jude Law but the film made him insignificant with the direction. It practically made everything insignificant because it could not balance the design, perspective and storytelling. The scale was not small but Wright's direction made it feel like it terribly small and unimportant. I've studied Russian society and am familiar with the story- it doesn't help the story, in fact a better descriptor could be that Wright made the film feel like a Lifetime stage film- budget but no vision.
