“We’re the couple that doesn't touch one another. We like each other a lot, and we spend time together. We just don’t touch each other, all right?”
I've never seen anything else like it. One of those movies that gets better every time I watch it, and I've seen it at least three or four times. Last time I was deeply impressed by the performances, especially the creativity of Gallo's and the subtlety of Ricci's. Gallo's film accomplishes a nearly impossible task; it introduces us to a thoroughly unlikable character and then makes us care deeply for him. Beautiful.
Truly wonderful. Works - no, blows you the hell away - as a bizzare love story, as an atmospheric genre piece and as a surrealist experimental flick. It's like John Cassavetes making a companion piece to Godard's "Breathless." Ricci was the standout for me on the acting side of things, but it's a career-highlight for everyone involved. It isn't easy to seamlessly blend dark drama and comedy, but Gallo does it here, and we don't think twice.
You adore me, you love me, you cherish me, Jesus Christ, you can't live without me.
Every scene is remarkable;every character has interesting psychology. Gallo is funny in a creepy way.
I think I'm so jaded from all the depressing movies I've watched, that the ending hit me by surprise. I smiled for like five minutes.
The scene in which they're taking pictures is priceless. "We're the couple that doesn't touch one another. We like each other a lot, and we span time together. We just don't touch each other, all right?"
I watched this for the second time yesterday, and having that craving for about 3 years, I must say that I am so far from disappointed it is unreal, better than I remember. Vincent Gallo is just absolutely superb, charming and visceral. The repetitiveness of his speech, the childlike nature of his presence and the opposition of disregard and regard for his surrounding makes this film thoroughly enjoyable and funny.
first experience with Gallo. absolutely loved every minute of it. the story/characters/cinematography pulled at my heart
