The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★½

God I feel like we’re living through such a fallow period for complex, non straight to Netflix romcoms that I just soaked all of this up like a sponge. Can’t wait to live in fear for the next two years that an inevitable Hollywood remake, that misses the tone and point entirely, is going to be hastily shoved into production.

Also I find the reviews stating that Julie’s identity as a character weakens as the film goes on to be kind of funny, considering it feels like the Point™️ is that she is not only indecisive (see: the prologue about her million major changes) but also she loses her sense of self and individuality in her relationships (she literally says she feels like a supporting character in her own life at one point). With the ending feeling like a poignant little break away from that concept. Regardless, this felt like a big film for the girls (me) who really relate to “She’s indecisive, she can’t decide”, to quote Justin Bieber.
