    still an incredibly acute and accurate look at childhood depression through the lens of memory. one of pixar’s best, without a shadow of a doubt their best of the 2010s. pretty much a masterpiece, made me tear up every single time i’ve seen it. what a lovely film. also good god that score is incredible, holy shit.

    “I'm giving you my whole life, okay? I got nothing larger to give. I'm not giving it to anybody else. If you're looking for permission to disqualify me, I'm not gonna give it to you. Okay? I love you. And I'm not in conflict about it, okay?”

    possibly the best of all three of these. still in disbelief to this day how realistically linklater wrote this one. he completely understands the burning emptiness of humanity, how we fill that with other people, and if that actually solves anything about us. spoiler alert, it doesn’t. but that doesn’t mean people won’t love us for who we are.

    “Even being alone it's better than sitting next to your lover and feeling lonely.”

    the one that got away. they remember you. you may be halfway across the world from them, but they remember you. one day you’ll cross paths again and you gotta hold onto them. you can’t let them get away again. because maybe happiness is spontaneous. maybe love is spontaneous. so hold on. and never let go.

    “Why do I fall in love with every woman I see that shows me the least bit of attention?”

    recognizes romance as a strange and complicated beast that can never be fully tamed. kaufman understands how we feel attracted to each other, when the flaws in us start to show to the people around us, and how we take that. every person is a strange web of interconnected thoughts and ideas, and love is the combination of that. it makes everything more complicated. i’m crying. this movie is perfect.

    ★★★½

    egerton fucking kills (and frankly deserves at least an oscar nom) in this role. he brings a raw and fresh energy to the film that lights up the screen every time he’s on it. there are similarly great casting choices for most of the rest of the cast, who also give (mostly) outstanding performances. there’s also loads of visual flair that brings up the film (some nice long shots, lighting, etc.) its also like really really joyful which is good,…

    “It’s like our time together is just ours. It’s our own creation. It must be like I’m in your dream and you’re in mine or something.”

    who needs therapy when you have this fucking blessing of a trilogy. will be rewatching over the next few days, cause god knows i haven’t seen these films enough times.

    “if they say they hurt you because they love you, that is a lie”

    a heartbreaking, masterful, essential, warm, and completely thought provoking study on the lower class. too much of a teary mess to say any more right now. please support this with your money, we need to support Koreeda.

    it kind of sucks that i’ve actually kind of been enjoying some of these cheesy netflix films recently (someone great stans where we at?) this one comes along with a great cast and it’s just kind of bleh. it’s not particularly offensive or does anything particularly wrong, it just doesn’t do anything interesting. it’s not bold, it’s not confident, it just kind of exists. it also doesn’t help that it isn’t very funny either. none of this is to say…

    anyway while you’re here please donate to your local environmental causes because the earth is dying faster than we all think and in a little over a decade or two, we’re all gonna be fucked beyond belief! do something about it! get out there! we can’t pass on this hellhole onto our children for them to attempt to pick up after us.

    genuinely one of the poorest excuses for a film ever. among the worst ever made. i hate that my teacher treats this as legitimate environmental information. i have to watch it throughout the next three days. fucking kill me. might as well watch Lil Dickys Earth while we’re at it.
