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…
Everybody hurts, love is impossible. Yay.
Great movie to make you sob at 4 AM while you think about love
"I don't feel like I'm part of your life. I feel like I'm on vacation."
I could watch this film for years on end. It's perfection personified.
I rewatched this film with a friend to see if time had distanced me from my complete dislike on first viewing, shortly after my life briefly resembled it's plot. It did not.
Lots of friends I respect and often agree with love this film's romantic plot but I can't help feeling the characters themselves are completely to blame for all the ensuing drama and their complaints whiney. I doubt I'll be giving it a third try.
That's funny how distance can ruin a relationship. This film show us, in a particular way, how Anna and Jacob "survived" being separated throw years. Just because of a visa.
Their relationship in the very beggining of the film is so intense and intimate that you just want them to be together. They have chemistry and they seem perfect to each other. Then Anna has to leave the US and, when she comes back to see her soul mate, she is banned from the country. That scene broke my heart.
I just thought it was amazing. The writing is awesome, the direction is perfect and the acting is exceptional. It's deep, intense, cute, intimate, and pretty awkward at the end. Loved it.
#17 Melodrama, muy mal desarrollado, actuaciones de tablas en una madereria a excepcion dela madre de Felicity Jones, un soundtrack monotono, un buen guion, creo que mal desarrollado.
Me gusta el final, muy poco hollywoodesco.
This film's final moments are subject t o something I've been wishing upon quirky romances for years and years. And now that I've experienced it, I can say that it is
"It doesn't feel like this thing is gonna go away, it's always there. I can't get on with my life."
While this film didn't quite reach the height of a film like Blue Valentine (one of my absolute favorite relationship films), I still enjoyed the themes this film dealt with, specifically the latter half or so of the film.
The stuff that's great here isn't really the long distance relationship stuff, but rather the absolutely heartbreaking idea of attempting to fill the void of ones heart. Both characters, without spoiling anything, attempt to replace the other through other relationships, but always find themselves longing for the other. Are they meant to be? Is it true love that can't be broken?…
Great 60-90 min films (for those days when you just don't have the energy to watch a 3 hour masterpiece)
Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of hight quality "short" films. Easy…
