    Punch-Drunk Love

    saw this on the big screen for the first time at a cramped theater in the latin quarter and it ruled. stray thoughts:

    -this isn’t even my favorite pta romance and it’s still an extraordinary romance
    -the cocaine vs weed eras theory of pta really explains the differences between this and licorice pizza
    -a great entry in the canon of Running Cinema
