Sam Meltzer’s review published on Letterboxd:
Who is Julie? A frantically ever-changing yet all together intelligent and experienced individual. The world of romance is right underneath her.
I: An influence from societal norms hits, and Julie’s intent gains confusion and illusion.
II: The formation of a new, troubling path begins in a search for layers within freedom. More comes out of this experience than anticipated.
III: The release of inner rage, conflict and passion combine to form a personal piece of art.
IV: Showcasing your historical and awkward roots are ultimately a way of connecting yourself more to your loved one.
V: A horribly coincidental experience that’s the result of previous suspicion and sneaky behavior that reveals the truth within getting caught in an untraditional manner, and allows for a surprising disclosure within its chaos.
VI: The lurking from the other side, is the alternate perspective more than a vibration, a hope?
VII: New ideas turning into a new lifestyle.
VIII: A brutally hypnotic showcase of psychedelic visions providing an entrancing atmosphere.
IX: The inability to escape past feelings yet those feelings have turned into troublesome realities and unfortunate results.
X: The reassurance of love and its ability to control one’s thought process.
XI: The breathtaking downfall of a life-long journey that physically must end in order for authenticity to play its part.
XII: The termination of the past that acts as a deeply reflective form of observatory maturity.
Epilogue: Life repeats itself, opportunity is delightfully haunting and just around the corner.
The Worst Person in the World is a marvelously authentic, episodic look at modern relationships, sex, attraction and general emotional stability. I’m so glad that this exists and Renate Reinsve is a movie star.
