i dont usually go for artsy but this was beautiful
I absolutely loved everything about this movie. The soundtrack by M83 really makes the movie beautiful. I cried at the end ngl.
Mixed bag for me. I spent the entirety of this movie trying to figure out what was going on and why, and never did actually "get it" at the end. It was far to surreal, and there were way too many coincidences and convenient leaps in logic seemingly placed to drive plot advancement. Half the time, I wasn't sure if what I was watching was supposed to be real or dream sequence of some sort. I don't think it's a bad film per se, there was good acting and cinematography. I just think it was made to appeal to folks who like artier films, and I'm not that audience. I did enjoy the retro soundtrack.
So good! Sexy, beautiful, artsy, and poetic. All around well done and compelling.
