This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
i came out to have a good time and i'm honestly feeling so attacked right now. someone tell al pacino it's okay to play roles that get happy endings. even just one. please
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.
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.
also i watched this with my mom (whose name is barb) and she approved of it. barb approves of barb and star, so make her proud and watch this movie (that she claims is named after her) !
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 never fails to ruin me!
such a masterfully crafted piece of cinema. the acting, dialogue, story, cinematography, score, and everything in between is perfect. it all comes together to make this gorgeous, devastating work of art. it's so special and beautiful and it means so much to me.
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…
