watch me use my letterboxd as a consistent diary entry tool
ah yes, once again I am reminded of the curse of Bulgarian cinema. to take an idea that has so much potential, to have the necessary tools to make something so unique and beautiful and ephemeral... only for the final product to be able to come so close, yet so far away from those things.
don't get me wrong, I think this film is a good step towards trying to branch away from the rigid conventionality of Bulgarian cinema yet…
was thinking the whole time that this movie had very similar cinematography and writing to Place beyond the pines and Blue valentine (which are the movies I last watched) and then derek cianfrance's name shows up in the credits, so I guess that helps with explaining why I really liked this movie.
sound design was brutal, the cinematography was top tier and the acting was ridiculously good. riz ahmed delivered to perfection, but paul raci punched me in the gut.…
