  • Love in the Time of Hysteria

    Love in the Time of Hysteria 1991

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Jun, 2016

    Film #2 in Criterion with Hans Millett

    Solo Con Tu Pareja, what a magnificent surprise it turned out to be. The first thirty or so minutes I really had no idea what to think about this. It's quirky in an Arrested Development type of way and I kind of loved it. The humor felt a little dangerous at times (lots of suicide jokes) but came across as mostly innocent. A young Cuaron here seems like a totally different filmmaker then the one we've come to know. If anything, Solo Con Tu Pareja solidifies Cuaron as quite the eclectic director. You could say I'm a big fan.

    When I was in the eighth grade, my love for films truly began. I was on my way to Florida on a family vacation and had rented some movies off…
