Era 2 of Ethan Inglis' Letterboxd saga has begun: 07/20/2023. Heart means I loved it, no heart means I did not.
The Wes Group - 8 of 9
Going to write something extra special for this one, but give me some time.
Edit: How does one talk about something that has been their favorite film for such a long time? A film with so many layers to its storytelling, but with such a simplistic story behind all of it?
I suppose you’d start with the story. A young girl sits in a cemetery reading a novel. An author suffering from writer’s block…
Parts 16 - 18
And like that, it’s done.
You can’t go home again. Your home has changed and so have you. A man walks into a river from his childhood, but it is not the same. The river is different now and the man is older.
So much time on the road, people get older and start to die. Wounds heal but scars remain. It all started with a young woman wrapped in plastic, but now Pete can go…
Probably Greta’s most minor effort overall, but what a picture to be your weakest.
Plays it fun and entertaining for the first hour and forty minutes (with some fun jabs and homages) and absolutely walloped me in the last ten. That Ruth scene? The montage? The ending? That’s the Gerwig perfection. Loved it so much, wow!
Glad this made bank, excited to watch it countless more times.
Viewed in the David Geffen Theater in Los Angeles with an introductory presentation from the lead Makeup and Hair designers.
Not my favorite Burton, but such a sweet little fairy tale with sexual overtones and trademark kooky imagery. Was nice to watch a favorite in a theater: not used to that at all. Movies are magical in Los Angeles.
Scorsese Retrospective Film 15
He's a master. This is one of his masterworks. Easily the best film of the year, and easily top 5 of his features. This just needs a rewatch for the 5 stars. I loved every minute of this. Every ounce of humor, every crumb of pain, and every sense of gangster-style remorse. This was perfect. Thank you for not letting me down, Marty.
