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.
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 want a rewatch

I'd love a rewatch
I already miss it... LIKE CRAZY!
Handmade chairs as a symbol of emotional connection.. Quick cuts. Meaningless montages. Broken purse symbolism. Amounts to 30-second samples of characters/relationships. JLaw manages to be more interesting than the two leads in her small amount of screentime.
why is this so devastating every time

Something about Like Crazy had been making me want to avoid it for a while. From the trailers alone, I would have already guessed that this wouldn't even be my cup of tea. But sooner or later I decided to go ahead and give it a chance. I guess it's fair for me to say that when I came into Like Crazy, I was quite pleasantly surprised with what exactly I got right here. I won't deny that it's a very big stretch to call Like Crazy a masterpiece, but I actually quite liked what exactly it was that I got right here. I didn't exactly love it "like crazy", but I already feel that I had enjoyed it enough in order to give it a recommendation. Even if it may not look exactly like it's your cup of tea, I'd say you should give it a chance.
Jedna od najljepših i najrealističnijih ljubavnih drama koje sam pogledala.
Jacob (Amerikanac) i Anna (Britanka) su studenti u Los Anđelesu. Zaljubljuju se jedno u drugo i provode divne trenutke zajedno, koji se nažalost moraju prekinuti kada po završetku faksa Anni ističe studentska viza. Umjesto da se vrati u Britaniju i sačeka određeno vrijeme dok ne dobije radnu vizu, ona umjesto razum sluša srce - ostaje u Americi tokom ljeta i prekoračuje vizu. Pravi grešku koja čini zaplet ovog filma. Po povratku u SAD ulaz joj je zabranjen, što prolongira njihov ponovni susret i dovodi njihovu vezu u pitanje.
Da li će uspjeti da uklone prepeke? Da li je njihova ljubav istinska i jača od fizičke i vremenske distance? Vidjećete ako pogledate ovaj odlični film! :)
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I'm... so torn on this. On one hand, I didn't find either of the main characters particularly likable, but maybe that's because I saw the impossibility of their relationship early on and found myself distressed at how they kept, as one of them said, "stopping and starting." Their indecision and inability to move forward with their lives was... frustrating for me.
On the other hand, though, I was so satisfied with how the film portrayed the final scenes. The silent, non-ecstatic ending reminded me so much of an extended version of The Graduate's final few seconds -- after the ecstasy of getting what you thought you wanted, you realize that maybe all that effort wasn't actually what you really wanted.…
Does anyone know what it is that Anton Yelchin has that I don't? Why aren't Felicity Jones and Jennifer Lawrence both desperately swooning at my feet?
Revisited this divisive sundance hit with trepidation, thinking first time round I just got swept up in all the swelling indie rock and how cool some of the stylization of the tracking of time was and on that basis gave it an elated pass.
But it was a swing and a hit, again.
For all the criticisms aimed at Doremus' plot implausibility and the great sin of omission, story wise, what struck me most on a home video rewatch was how designed and considered each beat was. Like nine short films or episodes strung together by (yeah, OK) said cutesy music, Like Crazy is a carefully studied work of cinema that can be abstracted, pulled apart and put back together…
A realistic exploration of modern love.
