    Punch-Drunk Love


    A movie about a man with mental health issues trying to live and love in a world that stigmatizes mental health issues. This is not only Sandler at his best but Watson at her best as well. The cinematography is strikingly beautiful, particularly Anderson and Elswit's use of framing within the frame. And Brion's score is one of the best, not because it simply sounds good (which it does), but because it is so thoughtfully woven into Anderson's visuals in a way many film scores never quite achieve. 
    But above all, this movie makes me =)

    Normally I’d say it’s unfair to compare movies over trivial similarities, but honestly this probably benefits from being compared to Bohemian Rhapsody. Sure, it follows the formula, but the fact that it’s at least competently put together is a big plus.
    Like any jukebox musical, the musical numbers are shoe-horned in to flimsily fit the plot, but here, those numbers are actually interesting and well done.

    Absolutely wonderful. One of the best portrayals of anxiety I've ever seen on film. Burnham gives us cringe comedy that never once feels mean or exploitative, because it comes from a place of such genuine honesty. Elsie Fisher is delightful and I can't wait to see where her career takes her.
