Downsizing / by Kyle Vernier

Alex Payne has directed two truly great movies; Election, which will remain in my top 5 movies of all time forever, and Nebraska, which is a beautiful, deep movie that I loved. Downsizing, while good, is neither of those movies. I think if this movie had come out in The Pleasantville, Truman Show era it would have been heaped with praise. It is a little slow moving and the message gets a little muddled.
