C'mon C'mon

C'mon C'mon ★★★★½

+The relationship between Johnny and Jesse is the heart of the film. The interactions between the two are amazing, the dialogue will have you both laughing and feeling the same as Johnny.
+I wouldn't be surprised if a lot was unscripted.
+Joaquin Phoenix is great as always, his performance here reminded me of Her. Woody Norman is the star here though, sometimes I forgot I was watching a performance, he's that believable in the role.
+After a bit of research I found out that the interviews carried out throughout the movie, are genuine and real. The responses from the kids are pure, which puts a perspective on things and stresses the value of children's voices.
+The cinematography is great, I love the use of black and white throughout, especially when showcasing a new location or city. The shot of the two walking on the beach has got to be one of my favourites of 2021.
+I liked how texts and short stories are incorporated throughout.

Overall- C'mon C'mon is one of my favourite films from 2021, I'm very tempted to give this five stars. I'm sure I'll be revisiting it soon. Also... Blah blah blah

DID YOU KNOW- Mike Mills' kid, a seven-year-old at the time, came up with the line, "Be funny, when you can.", when Mills was stuck finishing the script, and he was having difficulty on the tone of the film, i.e. should it be funny or not. The kid also added "Well be funny comma when you can period."
