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 want a rewatch
I need a rewatch

I already miss it... LIKE CRAZY!
Reminding myself to write this review later.
Particular slang has a funny way of circulating from a friend's mouth to my tongue, as I found that the one word to describe this film was "aggy." From my understanding, when someone or a situation is being agitating or aggravating, you can knight certain people and moments with the title. And while Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones are able to provide the commonfolk face with earnest ideas about love, I can't help but feel that their whole situation was completely aggy.
Director Drake Doremus based this movie on his London-LA relationship, which ultimately did not work out in the end (or has it really ended?), and I want to give him the benefit of the doubt by appreciating the…
This film is the reflection of the kind of love in real life.
Against the distance, monotony, and the difficulties of life.
It's not about "Perfect love", it's about "Real love" and that is the best part of the film.
Let me introduce one of my favourite quotes in the film by Jacob:
"I saved a cat from a tree once... I love you"
Smashing, wonderful... Perfect to be "Like Crazy"
I have mixed feelings about this film. There were a lot of great scenes that bring out a lot of emotions in me but as the story progressed, it just started getting messy. By the end, I wasn't sure how to feel. Was I supposed to feel happy or was I supposed to be left sad and confused? Yeah, I think I'll go with the second choice.
In a parallel universe where all manner of online communication devices don't exist and people's brains don't work Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin have some trouble making their relationship work, which is fine by me as these too are moron's who have no one but themselves to blame for all the stupidity they get themselves into.
The acting's fine with even some touching moments here and there and Jones is just far too lovely to even comprehend and I can see why people adore this movie but the decision making by the characters just bloody infuriated me and made me thankful for the short run time.
Not much love for Like Crazy on LetterboxD but I'm siding with the view taken at The 2011 Sundance Festival when it won the Grand Jury Prize.
Well worth the watch in my view.
Read my DCist review.
Gutes Thema, aber leider hatte der Film nicht wirklich einen Spannungsbogen.
Habe zwar erst 3 Filme mit Felicity Jones gesehen, aber sie hat meiner Meinung nach immer abgeliefert, deswegen mag ich sie.
