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…
Anchored by two stellar lead performances, "Like Crazy" makes for one of the most real, raw portrayals of a modern relationship I've seen in recent memory. It made me feel a lot... and made me really long for the Anton Yelchin performances we're never going to get...
Led triumphantly by beautiful direction from Drake Doremus and wonderful performances from Anton Yelchin (R.I.P.) and Felicity Jones, Like Crazy is a fresh, honest, and heart-wrenching portrait of love.
Warning! Do not watch this film when your girlfriend is currently studying abroad (like mine does) for it may get a little more painful. For a movie revelling in a romantic relationship theme for exactly one and a half hour, of which about zero minutes dedicated to any sexual aspects thereof, it is pretty ludicrous that it is the thrusting of gorgeously looking Felicity Jones’ male side bitch on top of her that causes her bracelet, given to her as a present by the counterpart in her main relationship, to break , obviously functioning as the most obvious metaphor in the entire history of obvious metaphors. Just as it is mindboggling to see how that same male side bitch decides…
While attempting to be a meaningful deconstruction of love, Like Crazy hinges on the undeniable charm of Yelchin and Jones. The film quickly ensures that you believe their relationship, making it easier to overlook some of its pitfalls into genre convention.
The film is unreasonably predictable at times; it's often incredibly vague in every sense of the word; the cinematography is quite bland; it features editing reminiscent of a student film, and it feels as though all of the characters' issues could have been resolved with Skype.
That being said, the film does present a carefully constructed relationship that oozes realism and authenticity, with two extremely likable leads. Like Crazy also ends on a surprisingly sombre note of unpredictability, which should be applauded for presenting a 90-minute character endeavour before asking the question 'has it all been worth it?'.
Really great movie, very well acted and romantic
unpopular opinion: i didn't like his chairs
Timing is such a bitch!
This is the second movie I've seen from Anton after his death. :(
Nette Romanze mit Anton Yelchin und Felicity Jones. Einige Szenen gehen echt zu Herzen, aber mit dem Ende kann ich mich gar nicht anfreunden.
Argh, this film was playing with my heart the whole time.
I really like this movie: how much can Anton and Felicity say with just glances and silences, the quiet music that plays in the scenes. Anton and Felicity had a crazy chemistry right there, I was so impressed.
A very beautiful picture, simple and yet so full of meaning.
Doremus ci butta subito dentro l'azione,dopo nemmeno 3 minuti è già scoppiato l'amore tra Jacob e Anna.
Ma è un amore vero?E' un amore sincero?I 2 ventenni sembrano regredire fino all'età di 15 dove i rapporti non sono costruiti con dialoghi(quando ci saranno sarà un disastro per il loro rapporto) ma fatti di sdolcinatezze,regali e sesso ovviamente.E allora la caratterizzazione dei personaggi và a farsi benedire,non sappiamo niente di loro,sappiamo solo che Jacob lavora di sega.
Ok,può essere che a Doremus questo non interessi e voglia farci concentrare solo sul sentimento.
Però c'è qualcosa che non quadra: Tipo la non convalida del visto,il trattamento riservato alla Lawrence ( che non fà una piega per ben 2 volte),il pupazzo Simon(Unico Inglese…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie made me so sad but not like cry movies do. The ending left me kinda empty and hopeless because of how real it is, the reality and plausibility of the situation and how often big love stories fade with time because of complications happen so often and it's terrible and unfair and there's nothing that can be done about it.
It isnt' clear if in the end they will stay together or if they'll break up but it's maybe sadder if they stay cause of the frustration and melancholy and unhappiness that that'll bring.
I was so sad and empty at the end, it kinda broke me emotionally.
