My Favorites are the most recent films I've watched that I really really loved.
Such a deep, personal, emotional experience.
I adore how almost the entire film is shot handheld.
The natural lighting, the framing, it's all perfectly put together to convey this cynical and bleak situation.
I don't even think the film is about any single idea, but instead heavily revolves around the main character, Mija, and we follow along.
I loved Yoon Jeong-hee's performance, she touched me on every level, made me laugh and smile and think of my own grandma, as well as made me tear up several times.
Overall it was simply beautiful.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
What a twisted and sick conclusion.
The literal sexual predator gets the rich white girl after continous harassment and public molestation.
The jock falls inlove with the "basket case" because she changed her hair do and makeup, conforming to gender norms.
And the nerd literally stays the same, they even still make him write up their essays after he confessed to being suicidal.
I have no idea what kind of a "breakfast club" is this supposed to be and how…
This shit is fucking special.
I heard many things about this film but never expected this entrancing and polarizing experience.
The color palette and cinematography was enough to buy me, but James Franco was actually absurdly good and so were each of the four girls.
And if we ignore the fact that it opened on Skrillex (which was actually dope and cemented this film in it's early 2010's era), both the soundtrack and score were fucking fire.
