There are lots of marvellous scenes, the visuals are sumptuous, and the three children are very moving. It just doesn't seem to blend very smoothly. Maybe Haynes could have gone even further / wilder and be less academic with the narrative structure. Perhaps, as some have said, the emotional core is not strong enough and the story is pretty predictable. A film to watch nevertheless.
Like watching paint dry. Has to be one of the most insufferable, tedious films I've seen. My eyes were rolling to the back of my head at things like the awful "action soundtrack", the Bowie plug-in,this absolutely dull plot set inside museums,the B&W gimmick, the kids. What is this shit? And then I find out it's by Todd Haynes and I'm apparently the only one on Earth actively disliking it so the dissonance is strong.
Elegancia y sensibilidad al servicio de una historia de soledad y amistad, sencilla y emotiva. La secuencia que explica la conexión entre los dos personajes resuelta con figuras y maquetas realmente me sorprendió. El score de Carter Burwell es de otro planeta. Estupendas las canciones funk correspondientes a la New York de los 70´s (incluyendo un gran tema de Car Wash)
One of last year's most underrated American films. How come did this gem go so under the radar during the entire awards season after its promising Cannes debut?! A dreamy story with marvellous soundtrack (Bowie!) and plenty of wasted notebook sheets! The scene at the Panorama was unforgettable.
