    the frustration one feels at watching someone ruin their own vacation due to stupid anxieties does even not come close to the frustration one feels when one is in a beautiful place too overwhelmed by listlessness and deep sadness to enjoy it. its special to watch a film that encompasses both frustrations, and that allows you to perceive your own such moments critically and empathetically

    how fun to watch a movie that feels like it should totally have a bigger audience! cillian murphy plays the good-looking POS who falls for the hard-working good girl in a somewhat mean comedy with its fair share of hits and misses. lovely soundtrack, a perfect run-time, and very easy to watch.

    i turned to my friend and said "i think im going to like it more now that im seeing it in a cinema" before the film started and i was right! who knew that tsai ming-liangs movies work better for me when im not distracted by multiple technological devices?

    a slow, strange, sad, and beautiful film. fairly certain that if i ever watch this again it'll end up being a 5-star film for me.
