Best review for this film I've read. I guess I made the right decision to skip it.
You know what killed me the most about this movie? The soundtrack. Oh my lord, just the most banal *this is an indie movie can't you tell* bullshit. But Sam Rockwell can have my babies whenever he's next available. And Allison Janney can help me raise them, I even pray that one of them has a lazy eye.
I have a theory that The Smiths' "There Is a Light that Never Goes Out" is about her. Logically, I realize that's impossible but WHATEVER. #girlcrush
I kept waiting for this movie to fail.... And it never did. Splendid. Wonderful. Sublime. (I could keep going but I'm gonna stop.) .... Amazing! Ok. I'm done.... Magnificent!
I'm gonna say...Vertigo.
New idea for Halloween costume: Suzy Bishop.
Had low expections and was beyond pleasantly surprised. So good to see Noomi! Also, is it weird that I still wanna do Fassbender during this?
Underrated, mainly in terms of Fincher's career as a whole. Very Hitchcockian. Clearly Saul Bass-inspired opening credits! And Foster is a BAMF. Love it.
Either a really crappy romance or an absolutely brilliant self-reflexive postmodern comedy. Not sure.
"It's hard not to be romantic about baseball." Hell, it's hard not to be romantic about this movie. Finally managed to watch it again and wow. It's invigorating.
"Listen, I wouldn't stay here for more than 2 minutes and 37 seconds. We're having the walls and ceiling removed... "
Once it got over the whole "OMG let's be like Harold & Maude and aren't we just so adorable 'cause she knows everything about birds and he crashes funerals hardy har har" idea (and I stopped wanting to shoot myself), it ended up being very sweet and funny in parts. A truly lame screenplay but Hopper and Wasikowska had a nice chemistry.
I literally have lost track of how many times I have seen this. And you know what? My eyes are glued to the screen every single time.
I was very apprehensive about seeing this film, I was afraid it was going to be yet another film that would of course be brilliant but just something that I would have to seriously analyze and not enjoy at all. But it was so much fun! There is indeed quite a bit to analyze but Frampton almost gives his viewers a remarkably intriguing game. Loved it.
I loved this even as a kid -- classic comedy!
This reminded me SO MUCH of Jeanne Dielman.... I agree that it did fail in many ways but I like that it tried. And I was interested. Most of the time, anyway.
I've never cried during this film but I'm left absolutely heartbroken for hours after.
I can't stop thinking about this.
