    ★★★★½

    this is less of a review and more of a....theater report. if that's a thing. i couldn't really say anything more about this special that hasn't already been said. however, i'm really glad i was able to see it in theaters so i want to write down some things about my experience.

    -the audience skewed fairly young. quite a few teenagers and college aged kids (like me lol). i did see some parents come with their kids. no elderly people…

    this movie is 20 now. i hadn’t rewatched it since high school. for better or for worse, this is probably the movie from my adolescence that made me into the young adult i am now. i spent so much of my teenage years wishing i could just ride away on a bus. other times i was terrified i was the one who would be forever waiting for the bus that never came. i’m not sure where i’m at now. i guess i’m not thinking about the bus anymore.

    mom wanted to go to this with me, but i insisted she wouldn’t like it so she didn’t come along. i’m glad because this film would’ve caused her to have heart palpitations and die, probably.

    ★★★★

    i love movies about the ocean, or water in general (see the first movie in my top 4 lol) so i was pretty much guaranteed to like this.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    i didn’t realize i would actually have a lot of thoughts about this film but somehow i do.

    i think that this was all about style over substance. and honestly, that’s totally fine, because this movie was stylish as hell. i tho k one of the things that really made it was the music; it felt like a musical in some aspects, with the montages set to relevant songs from the time period. those were such a blast to watch…

  • In the Mood for Love

    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★★★

    i suppose that there isn't much to say about this film that hasn't already been said. in my experience, sometimes a piece of art touches you so deeply and so completely that you can't even cry, but you feel so much. it's an emotion that's hard to describe. loneliness and yearning and sadness and nostalgia. beauty and tragedy in equal measure. Love. in the mood for love is all of this and more, and it deserves every drop of praise it has received.

    if i wrote anything serious about my thoughts on this, it would be way too personal, so i’ll just say i’m glad that bo burnham got to look slutty for so much of this.

    i love ratatouille so much, but this film absolutely deserved the oscar over it. i loved everything about it and i can see myself coming back to it again and again throughout the rest of my life.

    ★★★★½

    this checked off every box for me. 1980s. stylish editing. beautiful soundtrack. enemies to homoerotic friendship. melodrama. i love it. i can’t believe the same guy directed face/off.

    ★★★★

    honestly, all the jokey, quippy reviews of this film aren't funny to me. this is a heartwrenching film, in my opinion. this is a very sad film. one review mentions that this film feels like watching ghosts, and it truly does--the ghosts of these women's pasts linger, and they can't let them go. why would they? they were much happier times, and if they can cling onto those happy times, they can ignore the grime and disarray around them. they…
