    Is my favorite film of all time losing it's hold on me?


    If it is, I have no idea how to deal with that. I got home from my screening of Moonrise Kingdom (I saw it in a theater for the first time in 5 years) and just broke down into full ugly tears. I can't accept that my tastes may be changing, I can't accept that I'm changing, I just want to be a kid.


    Growing up. How does…

    ★★★★

    guttural screams and their instrumental equivalents. impossible to deny this as a collection of some of the most powerful live performances in american history, and the doc around it is pretty damn good too! Even its most rushed moments (of which there are few) still feel poignant and powerful, and its finest moments, usually long takes of the concert itself, are miracles of film. really great use of fades in this, and honestly regardless its a great time at the theater (thanks Disney for barely releasing it!). my first post-covid concert is gonna bang

    i was gonna say there are shots in this that overcome the weird digital sheen but apparently random bits of this are shot on film! weird. for some reason i wanted zemeckis to have directed this, which i admit sounds fucking crazy but i feel like it needed some kind of classic 70’s/80’s look to really cook and shane at point just won't let his images breathe. still good though ryan screams a lot, I’d rather this than Free Guy
