34 metascore?! Really? Were the critics thinking this film was about demonic possession done poorly, not as good as The Exorcist? Incredible that Wonder Woman, a fantasy piece of garbage, fetches a 75 mscore from these same inept and in-the-back-pocket critics. Shame on them!
Brain on Fire is based on an amazing, true and important story. It's not fiction Hollywood Reporter, Gaurdian, Variety, etc. Did you even watch it?!!!
This film hits all the marks; Incredible true story, top notch acting, directing, sound, editing, music, cinematography, yada yada yada. If you don't like it and don't respect it for its integrity at story telling please take your meds
