The opening scene is one of my all-time favorites. So much emotion with so little going on.
There is a weird combination of "Badlands", "The Deer Hunter", and "Blue Valentine" in that film. A dream-like atmosphere with raw emotions. All the dialogues, that may sound cheesy and corny in another film, sound perfect and honest here. Wonderful.
NO MORE PULLING DOWN PANTS GAMES. ONLY BELLYFLOPS.
"I had a dream that you grew a garden on a trampoline, and I was so happy that I invented peanut butter." this movie is so sweet, quirky, and sentimental; it makes me wanna puke. I want to like this but it's too earnest and boring.
Not quite as beguiling as George Washington, but it still has that remarkable sense of place, and honesty, and looks super lovely.
Another wonderful film from David Gordon Green. Makes me even sadder he's no longer making movies like this anymore.
Probably the only film Deschanel has done that is worth a goddamn
So real and relatable. And I liked Deschanel for once.
Good movie and is allways a pleasure to see Zooey.
Occasionally swims in over-sentimentality. The performances are at turns boring and playfully mysterious.
Certain parts were extremely hard to bear... the tiptoeing flirtations and talks about nothing, that silly shot in the bowling alley... but I found Green's desire to be like Malick a bit admirable.
What the hell was that editing all about?!?!??!
It scares me how real this is. David Gordon Green is a master. MASTER.
One of my favorite films of all time, David Gordon Green speaks to me and to what kind of world that could closely resemble the realities. For how messy the relationships and lives are and could be, it is so perfectly executed and endearing to experience.
To call this movie anything less than real is an impossible endeavor.
I wish this would get the criterion treatment--I love hearing David Gordon Green speak--he is such a wise person for his age.
I went to high school with these characters.
