i write nothing of value but i like pretending that i do
How do you describe the indescribable? what do you even label it to begin with? A film? A TV series? A piece of art? or is it Art itself?
Stanley Kubrick called it the only masterpiece he could name in his lifetime and you think of the ground that covers.
Dekalog is often said to be about the ten commandments but I think it's a lazy way to put it.
It's a religious experience of it's own.
It takes on…
A masterful cinematic achievement, lead by one of the greatest acting performances I've ever seen.
Manchester by the Sea doesn't feel like a movie with actors, you don't get the feeling anybody's trying to act, or to bring awards attention, not even in the most emotional sequences of the film. everyone is just being. you get the feeling what you see is what it is.

a religious experience. almost like watching life from the afterlife. gives you that 'how the fuck did a human being make this?' feeling.
one of the greatest cinematic achievement ever.

surface level character work with a lot of cheese on top, but a GREAT family cast that is not only wonderful acting wise and has excellent chemistry together, but also looks the right dopey/adorable way which helps evoke the sympathy and emotion to cover up how filmsy their characters might be.
