Modern Romance ★★★★

this really was something. halfway through i started to get bored and thought i would just tune out but the last half hour was fantastic and really brought it home. 
this almost feels timeless. two people, just trying to stay together because they’re better off being together and unhappy than alone and and free, so they think. i feel like we as a species try and work things out and stay together when in reality it’s quite rare that you’re gonna find someone who you can spend your life with, because there are so many people on this planet. at least that’s how i see it. 
this had been sitting on my watchlist for a while and i decided to watch it because i saw that ari aster said that this had influenced midsommar and dani & christian’s relationship, which i can see. and i’m so glad i did because this is such a gem.
