Don't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of 200+ 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…
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…

I already miss it... LIKE CRAZY!
Fuck your uncommonly naturalistic, raw, intense, sincere, fleetingly beautiful, unfleetingly heartbreaking romance, I just want to cry and pretend that Felicity Jones is my girlfriend. I am broken. Again.
Like Crazy is a romantic drama that is focused primarily on exploring long distance relationships, and the hardship and frustration involved. The composition of the shots are intimate, and the dialogue is mainly improvised, which was obviously an attempt to provide a more realistic feel. It's intimate, and it works. Felicity Jones is fucking stunning, both looks and acting wise. Anton Yelchin is reliably good, and their chemistry together is electric, especially in the first act of the film.
My problem lies with the second and third acts. I understand what the film was going for, but a lot of the drama fell flat for me. I lost interest in the characters, and began to get even bored at some…
Simples e leve. Uma dose de amor em poucas horas de filme.
"I don't feel like I'm part of your life. I feel like I'm on vacation"
Why do I continue to watch this film?
Just makes me depressed that Felicity Jones isn't my girl.
Possibly the beneficiary of low expectations on my part: I had, for some reason, expected a quirky romantic comedy along the lines of (500) Days of Summer (which I liked, but didn't need to see the spiritual successor to), only to be surprised by a somber and sober-minded romantic drama. It's about the way time and distance (emotional, physical) put a strain on relationships, made worse by a lack of wisdom and life experience; it speaks to the truth that relationships don't fail because of one specific incident, but because the people in the relationship come to believe that there's nothing that can be done to salvage it; it's about the awkward silences and quiet sadness when we don't know…
