sometimes my arms bend back
the way hollywood treated elizabeth berkley after the movie came out doesn’t sit right with me. it’s really frustrating how everybody mocked her for her performance, as if it wasn’t the director’s aim to portray her character in that peculiar way.
as for the movie itself, there are so many issues i don’t where to start. so i won’t start at all. four stars!
i don’t know what made me do it, but i’m glad i watched this at the beginning of the year. during highschool there have been countless moments where i felt exactly like the protagonist of the movie. in 2020 i told myself i was gonna step out of my comfort zone and try not to avoid social situations. in a way, i think i kinda did that, but you know i didn’t have many chances to go out because of…
don’t get why people love this so much. the concept was interesting but the film itself is just pretentious. i guess depression is depicted in a realistic way, thanks also to kirsten dunst’s performance, but the whole thing is so forced and artificial. i feel like lars von trier tried too hard to make something meaningful. also, i hate that it was shot almost entirely with handheld cameras.
i saw carol about three years ago for the first time. i was starting to get into films back then, so i must say i forgot about it quickly. now that i rewatched it, i’m at loss for words. i’ve been trying to write a review for half an hour but i’m not ready to express my thoughts properly yet. i’m just gonna say that this is one of those films that are not films, but experiences.
