    paul mescal deserves the oscar simply for the fact that it got to the point where i was just crying whenever he was on the screen. i wasn't even sure what moment had me crying; despite what i was led to believe, nothing in this is something i would necessarily call overly sad or emotional or hard to watch. it is simply the last weekend between a girl and her depressed father. this was i film i deeply resonated and…

    a rare instance where i'll say i think this is significantly more effective watching this at home in the dark rather than a movie theatre.

    fun to hear the groans and laughs as the ending card came up. special shout out to the people who left halfway through the film, but sent one of their group in 5 minutes later because they forgot something.

    although this felt like a strange combination of eyes wide shut and boogie nights, what if i said it should have been even crazier? i enjoyed this but honestly i wish it really committed to its manic, surreal editing, as those chaotic and coked out segments served the film’s biggest stand outs, and for me, the entire film should have played out that way. moments that were focussing on emotion or some sort of semblance of plot just didn’t have me…
