    as with literally every time i consume anything truffautian, watching this with robert lachenay's commentary was absurdly inspiring in a really specifically useful way to a script i'm writing??

    anyway, some things i learned/want to remember:

    - truffaut:balzac is me:truffaut aka lachenay started reading balzac just so he'd have something to talk to truffaut about because as a 13 year old he read THE LILY OF THE VALLEY and would not shut up about how a guy kisses a woman's…

    2) a character alive, saying a thing, cut to IMMEDIATELY, that character dead in casket alskdks it made me laugh
    3) lady gaga really hamming it up sucking on a spoon she used to stir her coffee

    so silly, somehow adam driver is the least unhinged person…

    felt so prepared to fall in love with this film but i couldn't help feeling like everything was a little underdeveloped. in the film we spend time with essentially three characters for 106 minutes, and somehow they all feel sort of surface-level in exploration. it just feels like a lot of this film is people discussing what other people are like without really seeing that exemplified in the film itself. greta lee is excellent, but i just feel like she…
