“If memories could be canned, would they also have expiry date? If so, I hope they last for centuries.”
Anyone who takes public transport regularly, has crossed paths or glanced at a certain person that you feel like you should go over and talk to but you just sit there and, for some reason, plan out your life with them and then realise you’ll never see them again once you come to a stop. Before Sunrise captures that feeling perfectly. It brings to life those dreams you have when you are in that limbo period of listening to your…
What a beautiful film. This is my second film by Edward Yang and his work has well and truly blown me away. It's so hard to put into words the feeling you have after watching something by him. I've only ever seen a few other people be so detailed in their writing and directing when it comes to human characteristics and mannerisms. It felt so natural. It goes so in-depth with every character and it follows so many storylines that…
Sci-fi in the 80s was just too good but this, well this, isn't so good.

Along with the confusing story, the writing was just rubbish and with the mediocre acting, it was just hard to watch. It never kept the audience guessing and it just out-right explained everything on the spot.
I liked the worms though.

The dedication that this man has is nothing but inspiring. He works long hours, does 6 day weeks, and then on his day off, he cleans a river. That’s just insane.

oh. my. god.
What? Just? Happened?
First of all, the performances were easily some of the best of 2019 and the fact that it was only nominated for one category genuinely pisses me off.
Willem Dafoe is a nut case and Robert Pattinson is still surprising me after every film I see him in.
The cinematography was amazing. I kept on getting Wes Anderson vibes in some of the shots (which isn’t a bad thing at all). The framing was perfect and the mad screenplay couldn’t have been better.
Go watch this now if you haven’t already!
