    The Age of Innocence

    ★★★★½

    “You gave me my first glimpse of a real life and then you told me to go and carry on with a false one. No one can endure that.”

    “I’m enduring it”

    An anomaly for Martin Scorsese’s oeuvre, The Age of Innocence stands out for more than just being a period drama, but also for being a marvelous adaptation that highlights some of the 90s best actors. I mean, come on! DDL, Michelle Pfeiffer, AND WINONA RYDER (who totally deserved her…

    “Like most intellectuals he’s intensely stupid.”

    This movie is so weird and insane. 

    “I wanted you before we ever met. My self esteem demanded it.”

The cinematography here and specifically the lens choice is impeccable. Once this is fully available, definitely go see it. It is both anxiety inducing and utterly fantastic. Can't wait to see what Emma Seligman does next.
