Lena Houst’s review published on Letterboxd :
Tired: the dialogue is so dated
Wired: it was dated upon release & only now is the film old enough to realize that all teens cultivate their own bizarre, mediocre language to sift through the circuitous tiresomeness of this world in a way that feels unique to them.
Sincerely holds up better than 'No Country' or 'There Will Be Blood', imho. Probably because it doesn't feel so methodically synthesized that it neuters its own emotional life. It's also a relief to revisit my teenhood favs & find that I wasn't misguided in loving them. Films about women with variant tastes & outlooks were always my jam & it's refreshing to re-discover that as an ongoing throughline.
