The Long Day Closes

The Long Day Closes ★★★½

The Boys Recommendation Series: 23

The feeling I got from watching this film is so singular. It's like a deep melancholic nostaglia for a life I never lived.
There are some truly stunning sequences in this film where the cinematography and music work together inceredibly harmoniously to provide a very hypnotising and poetic moment (look at the end shot for example).

Im pretty damn sure I would give this a higher rating if I understood a single fucking word said throughout the entire runtime. It's near impossible to connect to any of these english blokes speaking borderline gibberish. I guess that's the Criterion Channels biggest downfall; no english subs for these types of movies. Like seriously this might as well have been pig latin for all I care.
