I watched this show over and over and over again for almost the past month and I just can't seem to ever stop thinking about it.
Is it Mark Ruffalo's performance? yes. Is it the way Derek Cianfrance was able to turn this 1,000 page book into a 6 hour mini series? Absolutely.
But there's honestly something much more deeper than that.
I think it's the way Cianfrance was able to make the story a lot more darker and cathartic…
you know how back in 2017 everyone had lady bird ? yeah this is MY lady bird.
a brilliant directorial debut from jerod and a FANTASTIC performance from christopher.
the chemistry that these two shared on screen was so fun and great to see. shows that true friendship is something we all need.
god the way I was able to relate to this SO MUCH. depression, anxiety and suicide is tough thing to deal with so seeing this be talked about on the screen in a dark comedic way, felt oddly comforting to me.
