CraigLumley’s review published on Letterboxd:
I've NEVER wept at the end of a film like I did with this one.
Being a young girl in the 1950s, experiencing this, Rooney Mara's character must have felt like she was on mars. Who knew life could be like this?
Filmmaking at the highest level. How did they do it? Todd Haynes has built an emotional computer or some shit, so many wires, all working together, all perfectly placed.
I don't know man, shit. It's real good.
EDIT: This is easily my most liked review. Fine by me, came from the heart. But the phrase "emotional computer" fucking haunts me. Though I think what it says about Haynes as a filmmaker rings true.
