God I love this movie so much
The fact that this movie was shot for over 12 years makes it even more incredible. I also love how real this movie is - it shows the experience of the life cycle in only a couple of hours, how big moments only blow up in memory; how meaningful things don't happen; they haunt. I love how honest and truthful it is; Mason does nothing more incredible than graduate from high school and leave for college. This movie is purely about life and nothing else, and how the most meaningful moments tend to be the ones we don't appreciate the most.
