Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of hight quality "short" films. Easy…
I Want You. I Need You. I Love You. I Miss You.
A British college student falls for an American student, only to be separated from him when she's banned from the U.S. after overstaying her visa.
About 30 minutes into this, I broke. Completely. And pretty much stayed in that state for the rest of the film.
A quiet, intense, honest, bitter and utterly heartbreaking look at love. Possibly the best movie I've seen in a long, long time. There are so many great things about it, so much that I loved. So many clever uses, fantastic performances, fantastic scenes.... I can't praise this movie enough. It's fantastic that even in our times, there are people capable of telling stories about love that actually feel fresh.
I loved it.
Seriously! This guy could have moved his shitty one chair business to London and saved a ton of drama. What a dick!
When I read the synopsis of Like Crazy I imagined a different film, I thought that I was about to see another romantic teenage drama but afterall it is a very interesting portrait about long distance relationships and the consequences of it.
In Los Angeles, Jacob and his British college collegue Anna fall in love with each other. Anna was supposed to return to the UK after graduation but she violates her student visa to stay with Jacob during the summer and because of that she was banned to enter in the US. They are madly in love. How a love like this can survive? That's what we see in this beautiful and heartbreaking little indie film.
Time changes people…
Warning! Do not watch this film when your girlfriend is currently studying abroad (like mine does) for it may get a little more painful. For a movie revelling in a romantic relationship theme for exactly one and a half hour, of which about zero minutes dedicated to any sexual aspects thereof, it is pretty ludicrous that it is the thrusting of gorgeously looking Felicity Jones’ male side bitch on top of her that causes her bracelet, given to her as a present by the counterpart in her main relationship, to break , obviously functioning as the most obvious metaphor in the entire history of obvious metaphors. Just as it is mindboggling to see how that same male side bitch decides…
The movie that brought Felicity Jones into my life, for which I will be forever grateful.
The December Challenge: Film 5
Sometimes I think that I’m just a heartless bastard who doesn’t know what it means to be loved. Then I watch films like Like Crazy and I realise that everyone else has just been blinded by the false and rather vulgar interpretation of love that society has deemed the norm. Don’t get me wrong, I have no objection to spontaneous displays of emotion, nor do I have a deep-seated distrust of people who claim that they are “madly in love” (madness, by the way, is a mental illness… just putting that out there), but I do tend to think that anyone who says they’ve found the love of their life should probably wait until…
Se te hace un pelín lenta si no conectas desde el principio, lo cual a mi me ha costado. Aún así, no me ha desagradado del todo, ya que los temas que abarca son de los que pretendo ver en una película así. Está OK.
I just can't recover from the sadness of this film. It is ultimately heartbreaking.
Romantically and effectively heartbreaking. People should stop making films like this. Too emotional, too realistic, too attached to its audience that it hurts as well.
*this review is dramatic, sorry*
If you didn't understand the movie or if you had a hard time trying to figure it out, I think the song played in the credits will give you an idea. :---)
“I could say it but you won’t believe me / You say you do but you don’t deceive me / It’s hard to know they’re out / It’s hard to know that you still care.” – Dead Hearts by Stars
The story that held was quite intresting,but there was a prb, that they piecies were not conneced in the right way i guess some parts were just to short when they needed to be more in the film anyway I didnt like it
So real it feels like watching a documentary, and Felicity Jones simply wow.
Ah, a better movie. Awesome. I'm a sucker for romance films. Specially the ones that looks nice, have good acting, and kinda make me sad.
So Felicity Jones and Felicity Jone's boyfriend in the film (the name escapes me) meet in LA when she's a student from London, fall in love. She over stays her visa, and so it complicates her returning to him. They try long distance, they try being friends, its complicated and hard and makes them both sad, in addition to the fact that while they love each other, they've also found different people in their separate lives and countries they also love, or at least have similar feelings for (one of whom is played by Jessica…
This humble indie drama is a little sweet, a little sad and a little bit quirky. While I enjoyed the performances of Yelchin and Jones, and I found that the film could never really hit any of those three vices.
One of the most realistic portrayals of love in my opinion. Also, Felicity Jones is just so darn cute.
