    High Fidelity

    ★★★★★

    What a change in perspective seeing this at age 20 upon release versus seeing now at age 40. My 20 year old self is thinking, “I will never end up like Rob”, and now my 40 year old self realizing, “Shit, I think I did turn into Rob in too many ways”

    Once we realize that a good portion of those deaths have already taken place early on, it kind of takes some of the suspense away from there.…
