    ★★★★★

    A rush of nothing but optimism. Happiness and love personified on film stock. Whimsical and vibrant. Odd and pure.

    For 2 hours, I was swept up in an absolute dream. A dream in which hopeless romantics and the most kind-hearted and lovable individuals roam. A dream with a soundtrack that has me bursting with joy. A dream where colors are just a little brighter. A dream where Audrey Tautou is my guardian angel.

    Add this to films like Punch-Drunk Love, films I want to live in forever. Films that feel like the warmest hug.

    The single most absurd movie I’ve ever seen.

    Oh and THOSE END CREDITS WHAT IN THE WORLD.

    “We’re smoking refer and you don’t want no part of this shit.”

    Why did the music go so hard

  • Moneyball

    ★★★★½

    A phenomenal script that is anchored by two fantastic performances by Pitt and Hill. I have very little knowledge on how baseball works and this explores it all extraordinarily well. All of it was completely engaging.

    “It’s hard not to be romantic about baseball” is a line spoken multiple times, and towards the end of the film, I started to feel pretty emotional about something I’ve never had a deep connection to. That right there is the power of the movies.

    “Its real, honest, raw, and brutal.” 

    Give me a real, genuine reason why you enjoy this that ISN’T the first line i wrote. I’ll wait. 
    The most headache inducing, obnoxiously written, deplorable, sickening thing I’ve ever seen.

    “That’s how life was like for kids like this.” 

    Fuck you, Larry Clark.

    I’ve.... never cried more, I don’t think?

    Finding out this had no dialogue in the script and it was entirely improvised makes me love this even more.

    My words won’t do it justice. This film just doubles down on all my favorite things. An indie drama with heart and honesty. 

    An exploration of death, loss, friendship, and love. Ray Romano deserves Oscar recognition. Mark Duplass is one of my favorite human beings. Director Alex Lehmann can continue making these types…
