    Let me make it clear for the second time this week: I love Jim Jarmusch. This is easily his best shot film (that I’ve seen.) That shot of them watching the boat? Gorgeous. I also love Bob. But more importantly I love Jim Jarmusch. I’ll never be this cool.

    Embarrassingly relatable. And I know I say that a lot but this was...aggressive. The freshman roommate, the crying the second you get off the phone with your mom, the ******* ** **** **** **. I can’t pretend this doesn’t have it’s flaws, but I also can’t pretend this isn’t a direct reflection of who I was my freshman year of college. And to an extent, who I still am in a few ways.

    I feel like I’m the only person in the world who watched this BEFORE Thunder Road but I’m into it! This has some really nice moments but I think the (interesting) subplots kind of fold in on each other  and make it hard to care or find a clear tone. It dabbles in comedy, horror, and drama but never REALLY commits to any of them. But, it does those little moments of each style super well. The cinematography is FULL of…

    I think literally every scene topped the previous one. I cannot emphasize how every part of this felt like it was made specifically for me. Unbelievable!!!

    This and Fantastic Mr. Fox are both enjoying drinks in the corner of the film industry, chatting over how they quietly redefined the heist movie.
