Doesn'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.
Or Sundance Jury on Crack. Vaguely fragmented style aims for lyricism, but its true function, I suspect, is to ensure that Doremus can just skip past all the dramatic scenes that would expose his Idiot Plot (which by some reports is based on personal experience...but if that's true, and things went down as depicted here, he and his girlfriend were truly blithering idiots). I for one am dying to eavesdrop on the phone call Anna must have made to her parents to tell them she wasn't coming home after all, even though her mum had just got all in her face (telephonically speaking) the previous day reminding her what a disaster it would be if she overstayed her student…
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…
ok but where is my soulmate
Distance is something bad when in love, everybody knows it and this one shows the feelings and actions we made in these situations; time flies, people start their lives again and again and has no end to suffering, their love is real and it shows the whole movie. Makes me sad see Samantha and Simon going through this, being couple of a person who do not are fully in the relationship because of the real love that keeps this barrier between them and i really understand that.. Life just moves on and you can hold.. Be with other people to forget is normal and better than get depress.
Well, trying not to think so deeply... Why she have stayed…
Young love and the naivety that comes with it.
Charming, sad, depressing, raw, and terribly beautiful. A great love flick to make you question your own relationships. Is it really perfect? Is it really forever? A great love story. Not too cheesy or flimsy.
Perfect movie for Long Distance Relationship's couple! By watching this movie, it's shown the 'real challenge' for couple when they're together or separated; that love story is not always full of beautiful story but also frustration, sadness, and unhappy story. The ending is perfectly making me numb for a long time even when the movie is over.
The first time I saw this film, I really and truly hated it. I've bumped it up a full star since then, on the grounds that I can now recognize the very high level of craft behind it, from the shooting to the editing to the actors' improvised dialogue that always feels tight, poignant, and on-point. But what I constantly come back to is the question of why this story needed to be told. The characters start off relatable enough, before becoming truly unlikable, and, worse, boring. On the commentary, the director said he wanted to explore the heartbreaking issue of loss of connection, which doesn't strike me as the most riveting theme to explore, or one that I can…
Very depressing. Just when you thought the film couldn't get any worse, it did. Although the dialogue felt refreshingly real and honest, the main characters weren't defined well enough for me to really be rooting for their relationship. The pacing was very odd, allowing for some overly long and indulgent sequences of 'wistful gazing' but then skimming over rather important plot points too quickly. All in all, this isn't really a bad film, but it doesn't make a very enjoyable viewing experience.
it was just really stupid and bland like this could've all been avoided if they weren't idiots
