Truly one of the absolute best films in the existence of films.
It has already even surpassed "Ritual" as my 6th favorite film.
Ladies, gentlemen and non-binaries, I have decided for my 3-day break that starts this friday to watch what will definitely be the longest movie I will ever see and I am going to do it a SINGLE SITTING.
It will either be a challenge or it'll be an experience.
I send this on Letterboxd because I want to obligate myself to really do it.
I really do not like YMS nearly as I did in the past as I think he has gotten a little too pretentious for me but honestly, I really appreciate that he made me recognize this movie. One of the best "based on a true story" stories ever made and a really creative and beautiful way of presenting the perspective of the main protagonist.
I said I would rewatch it and I did. Even better on my 2nd time.
Also, for a film of the early 60s directed by a male director, this film had excellent understanding in how women are cruelly treated by men in relationships on a psychological level and how we unfairly expect them to be easily convinced to be happy through material means.
