The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★★

I think this might just be my new favourite film of all time.  I’m just so overwhelmed by the fact that this exists.

Take the opening scene…nothing and i mean nothing has seemed more relatable . A confused 20-something medical student trying to find purpose in life. Just those initial few dialogues; 
“She’d chosen medicine because it was so hard to gain admission. Where here excellent grades actually meant something. But then she had a revelation. Her passion had always been the soul. The mind, not the body.”

Moving on, this movie just kept topping itself. You’d think this is another slice-of-life romantic drama, but no, it is so much more. It is experimental, creative and one of the most profound representations of the human experience i’ve seen. Just that scene where aksel is talking about how he has nothing left. has no future and all he has left is knowledge and memories of stupid futile things… man those lines hit hard. Just the general atmosphere and the mood of the film, it transitions so smoothly from upbeat, cheerful to melancholic to morbid to pleasant satisfaction, kind of like the human experience.

Also that schroom scene…..🤌 Lynchian.

I’m still processing this film, but this has truly  been one of the most memorable movie watching experience i’ve had in a long time and i can already tell this film will remain very close to me for the rest of my life.
