This is a beautiful work. It definitely made me feel closer to something bigger than myself. There's real suspense in this conversation, and ideas so full of wonder and emotion. After finishing it, I felt like I needed to watch it all over again because there's so much here to think about. This is one of those truly special movies that only comes along every once in a while. I can safely say it's a new favorite.
I can't believe I never left a single comment here. Well what can I say? I was still 18 when I first watched this movie, and my life has been completely changed ever since. I never think the same way as I was before, I never lived my life the same way as I was before, and I've always been looking for a stimulating, engaging conversation with my friends since then (without much luck). My all time favorite.
So many insightful fascinating things are said in this film, it really is quite overwhelming, the very ideas they share. This is why I love film. Ideas shared that can be so alien at first, but at the end, coming back to reality, you feel you have learned something and experienced something profound and truly special, that you never would have had otherwise. An exchange of experiences and ideas, ones with meaning.
I had high expectations for this film, so when the first 45 minutes came across as banal anecdotes, I became dubious. Then, in an instant, it switched, to what I had hoped for; and thus became one of my favourites. Beautiful.
