    Starts and ends with a kid shitting his pants while also using farts as a plot device? Sign me up!! It’s as comforting as a warm blanket and about as pure and delightful as anything I’ve ever seen. Ozu’s framing is phenomenal and his use of color is stunning. My first Ozu and it did not disappoint!

    The first shot of Celine in the bookshop. The car ride when they nearly touch each other. The look on Celine's face as they walk up the stairs. The entire fucking movie always makes my heart stop and I’m left trying to catch my breath while oscillating from opposite sides of the emotional spectrum. Just perfection from start to finish.

    They say god is in the details, but he sure as hell skimmed right over them when he made this. I was expecting a full-on campy biopic by way of Scarface, but instead got a half baked Lifetime movie. Not to say Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield aren’t incredible; their performances alone gave me war flash backs of growing up going to a Baptist church in the Bible Belt. But for a couple who fudged the numbers so they could live an extravagant life, this is unfortunately a very by-the-numbers biopic.

    Too much raping, not enough disco dancing.
    Fuck this movie forever!
