    kenneth lonergan knows how to capture grief (and emotion) so well it's like he reached inside of my brain and processed my feelings for me and then put them in a movie. patrick's irrational yet totally rational breakdown over the freezer renders lonergan a master observer of humans, or at least me, because i know that feeling so well yet it's one that is so difficult to articulate. he is also able to make me feel so much about situations…
