    i don't really know what i expected going into this, but this completely shattered any and all expectations i had. it was surprisingly funny at times, and a lot more emotional and touching than i thought it would be. the cinematography was absolutely stunning, and i can see why everyone talks about it (it's just that good!). this film really spoke to me and i can see it becoming one of my favourites after another watch.

    Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar

    ★★★★

    this is the best movie ever because it a) has a musical number about seagulls and b) has a scene with kermit riding his bike.

    this was my first film by satoshi kon, and i absolutely loved it. i'm really looking forward to exploring more of his work.

    the storytelling aspect was so unique and really striking. the way it blended the present with the past, reality with fiction, was so intriguing and mind-bending. i've never experienced anything like that in a film, and it was really special. while i initially found this aspect a little confusing, when i did get into it, i was swept…

    this film confirmed for me that i would never be able to be a journalist because bc a) i'm bad at talking to people, b) i have phone anxiety, c) i can't stand the fluorescent lighting of the office and d) i'm a horrible writer. but good for them though !

    major content warning for this film so i understand if it's not for everyone (and i recommend going to a website like doesthedogdie/asking me if there is anything that you think might trigger you)!

    BUT. wow this absolutely blew me away. the score and visuals were perfection. it's definitely one of the most visually stunning films i've seen.

    the whole time i couldn't stop talking about the camerawork and the stunt choreography. i know everyone and their mom talks about…
