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!
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…
The movie that brought Felicity Jones into my life, for which I will be forever grateful.
I want a rewatch
I need a rewatch
I'd love a rewatch
I already miss it... LIKE CRAZY!
A beautifully told story about a young couple's struggle with a long distance relationship. I really believed in their love for each other and their pain when they weren't together.
Es una historia de amor que explora bastante bien lo que significa estar físicamente separado de la persona que quieres. Es muy indie, y Anton Yelchin y Felicity Jones están realmente muy bien en sus papeles. No es el Antes de atardecer para una nueva generación que podría parecer, pero es interesante.
I remember it was much better the first time I watched
2 words: terribly upsetting.
I may be rating this higher than it really deserves, with its almost too easy handheld, low-key indie aesthetic. With its loose resemblance of a plot. But something about the naturalism of the performances, the two actors, and specifically, I think, the breadth of time covered in 90 minutes, the ups and downs that kind of blur together, evoked the memory of a real relationship for me, the loss of one. The final shot in the shower kills me.
This film broke my heart, but i absolutely loved it.
Anton Yelchin's face gives me delusional parasitosis
Not nearly as dark as "Blue Valentine" yet also not as stylistically idiosyncratic as "(500) Days of Summer", "Like Crazy" is a love story told with elegant pencil-skirt simplicity and presented with the cold shoulder of what amounts to a twee sort of tragedy. It goes the route of being bittersweet over the polarities of either overjoyed or mercilessly dreary, making the point it's HOW you live with someone else rather than forever fretting over WHY you're with that person to begin with. There's something haunting in its assuredly melancholic tone. On the surface it carries all the weight of a radio staple pop song, when really its message is deeper, more experimental, if a tad too, well. Insubstantial. At least compared to the arrowhead daggers of the narrative's otherwise rough, improvised edges.
God, do films have misleading posters these days. So, before I saw the film, I thought it would be just another romantic comedy. Wrong. This is a film of enough high caliber to match such great romantic flicks like (500) Days of Summer or Blue Valentine.
The story will make you feel sad. You will feel for these characters. You will root for them, you will pray for them, you will cry for them. This is all due to the great chemistry between Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin. They both do such a great job at portraying these characters and making you care for them. Of course this would be just great acting if this movie was actually filmed with…
My problem is... I can't relate. That's always been my problem. But I really hated these people. They go about themselves the completely wrong way, but they are allowed to, because they are very pretty and exist on the high end of society. Trust me, when life is a tougher experience, people think a little harder about who they want to be with, because it matters a little more. Am I suppose to sit here and let the light of their love catch my eye and hug my knees and hang on their every (drab) sentence? I couldn't help the feeling of disgust with this movie's insincerity. I don't understand why the pair are supposed to love each other, I'm…
