Now this is cinema!
Todd Haynes has gotta be proud of this, it's perfect. Carol gives me a feeling I simply cannot put into words.
Usually I hate it when some scripts force friendships into relationships (one of the reasons I loved the recent show Maniac) but this one pulls it off in perhaps one of the greatest sex scenes I have ever seen; you almost feel the tension and it's a beautiful turning point in the film. Amazing acting from Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett, incredibly well shot thanks to cinematographer Edward Lachman, scored beautifully by none other than Carter Burwell and directed to perfection my Mr. Haynes.
Everyone needs to see Carol! It's a modern romance classic.
