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.
I have more believable releationships on Tinder.
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…
Loved Drake Doremus Breath In, and both Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence as actresses that I like - but this movie doesn't live up to the expetions I have from them.
Loved the characters, but the story was vague and meaningless.
| Just my opinion |
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Porque no todos los finales tienen que ser felices.
Now here's a film that tells it like it is. Long distance relationships suck, and no matter how hard both parties try, sometimes they just don't work out. There's no flowery dialogue to be found in this film, instead just a realistic portrayal of the struggles of life and love.
Like Crazy is a typical star crossed lovers story. Our main characters Anna (Felicity Jones) and Jacob (Anton Yelchin). The couple falls in love but Anna is a British exchange student and after she overstays her visa, she is banned from entering the US and the two, despite their great love, find themselves growing increasingly apart both physically and romantically.
Where this film excels is in the writing and performances.…
Menjadi saksi hubungan cinta Anna Maria Gardner dan Jacob Matius Helm membuatku seperti orang gila.
Sus conflictos se repiten quizá demasiado y el tramo final no me convence del todo, pero la naturalidad de muchas de sus escenas y la enorme interpretación de sus actores provoca que no pierda el interés en ningún momento de la película. Felicity Jones está estupenda.
Y vaya momento WTF ha sido la aparición de Jennifer Lawrence, no sabía que también salía en la película.
"Because it's the halves that halve you in half. I didn't know, don't know, about the in-between bits; the gory bits of you, and the gory bits of me."
Jennifer Lawrence and Felicity Jones on the same movie, how can that not be amazing?
Like Crazy is a different love movie, that despite all the dumb decisions made by the characters, is really emotional and it kind of break me.
The soundtrack is simple and fits the movie perfectly. The acts are exceptional and the script is great and immersive.
How crazy love can be?
Jennifer Lawrence and Felicity Jones on the same movie? how can this not be awesome?
Feel as if enjoyment of this film depends mainly on how tolerant you are of the dumb decision that leads to the entire conflict. As someone that virtually never cares about that sort of thing (I wouldn't be able to enjoy genre film as much as I do if I cared a lot about dumb decisions and plot holes, so I'm not about to start now), I escaped the first 30 minutes of this relatively unscathed.
This film is at its best when Doremus is operating in what I can best describe as a sort of millennial hyperspecificity; in other words, I think the best parts of this are the parts that older viewers probably find insufferable, or at best,…
