jason bateman is the fck’n man, i want more directorial efforts from him, please. perfectly aligned with my vibe — easy going casual energy, dark / funny / abrasive, justified in its mean spirit.
rough & i appreciated every amoral bit of it: bad words is my jam of comedy, probably bc of my sailor-mouth.
finally, this took far too long to see.
haven’t been a huge fan of Luca’s films but after Bones & All,
this was required viewing. it definitely didn’t disappoint.
those ‘first love feels consuming you’ are shown with poignant specificity. illuminated by some gorgeous cinematography
& a most thoughtful screenplay.
great great great acting: timmy & armie have some crazy chemistry. i fully believe that michael stuhlbarg’s monologue is the single most important scene within the entire film & he delivers it with unbelievable effectiveness. beyond my favorite part, one of my favorite film monologues ever.
a whole bunch of beauty, love, pain, emotion, & feeling.
dusty bun had that rom-com pizazz
& this shit did him so dirty.
still, what a stellar sub-version of expectation: i was genuinely shocked with how groovy this movie turned out to be. angourie rice demonstrates lead girl vibes to perfection. however, gaten’s performance was everything. cool to see stranger things actors in other roles.
