The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★½

As someone who's been feeling stuck in arrested development for years now, this film felt extremely personal to me. That indescribable feeling of waiting for something to happen in order to start living, if there even is such a thing, is what the lead character in The Worst Person in the World is going through. A feeling that's gotten progressively more present in my daily life that, for some reason, makes me feel vindicated when seeing it portrayed on screen.
Not to undermine the rest of the film though, since it deals with a variety of subject matter which, through its structure, is able to dabble with it in interesting and slick ways. Dealing with several different situations all tied together through continuity and core themes, yet still being free enough to jump through various scenarios.
The naturalistic style of filmmaking and authentic characters and performances further elevate the already relatable story. These elements coupled with my own subjective connection to the film, result in a creative, hilarious, heartbreaking and cathartic experience.
