bren’s review published on Letterboxd:
“I just wanted to take another look at you.”
It’s still amazing; I still love it; it still hurts. That ending! I’ll just be sitting here listening to Is That Alright? for another thirty minutes. It was so surreal watching it again. It’s so powerful and beautiful and so so heartbreaking. I love Ally and Jackson so much. The way she unconditionally loves him and just wants him to get better even when he’s continually doing things that “affect her image.” (I can’t stand her manager.) I absolutely adore the wedding scene. It’s so beautifully done. Especially with I Don’t Know What Love Is. I love everything about this stupid film that keeps hurting me. Ally and Jack, I love you. My eyes are burning from the unwanted tears. Everything hurts right now.
Also I just found out Charlie is Bradley’s dog and now I’m thinking about that! scene! and I’m hurting even more.
