    You, the Living

    ★★★★★

    After Songs From The Second Floor grew on me an incredible amount after I viewed it. I thought it’d be silly of me to not go through The Living Trilogy as soon as I possibly could.

    And You, The Living really builds on its predecessor in so many incredible and genius ways. I like the way it captures the vastness of life. Not only externally, in the multiple vignettes that are shown here. But also internally; how we all share a lack…

    I can’t be too certain as to where this falls for me but I just empathised so much with this film and the more it went on the more sad and tragic it got.

    I think the way All That Jazz approached death was a really interesting angle; the belief that there’s closure when it comes to death when in reality you never see it coming. In Vagabond, however, it touches on this but with the sentiment and humanity behind it.…

    We’ll see where this ends up, I can imagine myself looking back on this film with a lot of fondness but who knows.

    I do have a few issues with this film, but nothing I can’t look past in comparison to the pros. Sandler’s input into the comedy side of things is so annoying. Like I’m not sure why there needed to be so many self referential fat jokes. Which you may find in any post-Grown Ups 2 Sandler flick.…

    Yeah that ending really threw me for a loop. Quite surprised at how invested I was in Karol’s arc and what his relationship with Doninique made him do.

    Love all the references to how unhappy you are in life regardless of material riches. As well as how everyone wants one thing more than anything else. And that one thing can inspire so much, or change so much about a person.

    Still contemplating this one. But I’m loving this trilogy.

    It’s just a masterpiece. Nothing like it. Heavily debated and polarising which I think is why it sticks with me so much. There are so many different ways to view this film and interpret it and it’s probably the first time I saw a film that creates this sort of feeling.

    The music and cinematography and set design and sound design all collaborate in creating such a mesmerising experience. You lose yourself in the vast expanse of space and I…
