    "is this really all there is?"

    when i tell you that i was more excited for this movie than i was anything else this year, i mean it wholeheartedly. its surprising though, this isn’t my kind of movie, its not the usual thing i get excited about. do i chalk a lot of it up to my enormous crush on dev patel? maybe.

    i thought i missed my chance to see it outside of my home but tyneside cinema released…

    “i’m so fucking tired. i thought i just needed a night’s sleep but it’s... it’s more than that.”

    there’s something incredibly intimate about the way people are portrayed in this film, how they enter llewyn’s life for a brief moment of time before disappearing entirely with rarely any conclusions. the way the camera lingers as someone walks away for the last time or a car drives off into the darkness. i don’t know how to describe it but its so earnest and painful and honest.

    while i wouldn't go so far to say that this film is boring, it definitely has moments where it drags much more than i think intended. its a slow burn and bradley cooper does an excellent job at showing the gradual development of his character but there's something that doesn't quite click.

    the acting is incredible for the most part but rooney mara is surprisingly the weakest link for me and cate blanchett while sexy as always also doesn't feel…

    okay so i didn't give this my full attention so i will need to rewatch at a different time but i really liked what i saw! i think the zombie genre can be used to explore so many different themes and can be so good when not used for just cheap scares (i do love the cheap scares too though don't get me wrong)
