i like gothic romances, dark academia, and her (2013).
i don't like lost in translation (2003).
dermot mulroney is so hot and i literally only watched this because i've always really wanted rachel to end up with gavin on friends even if he was only in three episodes,,,,,, i will Never forgive them for not giving me that ship, not when they broke up because she wasn't ready to date and then started dating someone else in the next episode!!!!
anyway, julia robert's character is a Horrible person and i hate her, but the ending with rupert everett is kind of iconic; i'm obsessed!
i think the reason why i love the safdies so much is because they treat each subject they capture on film with such tenderness. an uncut gem is an incredibly romantic notion—it's flawed, but there's beauty below the rough surface and it takes work to see it. you have to trust that it is there without seeing all of it naked. that's the way the safdies write their characters—lenny, harley, connie, and now howard. they treat their very flawed characters as heroes if only for two hours forcing us to look, really look, through the loupe at the gem.
