The Long Day Closes ★★★★★

i love movies so much im going to explode

this captures so elegantly what film as a whole is and can be; a collection of memories and dreams made immortal through art. Every dissolve (which fucking good oh my god the editing is magical) is the erosion of a temporary, but formative childhood feeling and experience. Conventional narrative structure isn't needed here, only the baring of the bits and pieces of someones soul. this film was already beautiful, but the "Tammy in Love" sequence elevated this to rock and roll status.
