Yi Yi ★★★★½

IMMEDIATE WATCHLIST 50/75

Yi Yi more like Yeet Yeet 

Fantastic all around... endless self-reflective layers of humane mundanity. Very powerful at times. So much to appreciate here. The camera doesn’t flinch or cut for a second in any of the large number of long-winded soliloquies, which do grow a bit tiresome after a while (as does the movie itself at parts), but as with some other generation-defining, familial dynamic-central films (see: Fanny & Alexander), 3 hours is a justifiable length.

Looks great, sounds great (e.g. the score), and there are plenty of memorable moments. So yeah, in summation, better than sex!!!

Wow, a Fellini and then a Yang? My cinephile certification points are certainly stacking up. 💩
