    Happy Old Year

    ★★★★½

    Horrible film review alert!

    I didn’t know I signed up for a drama, as I stumbled upon a very random film recommendation. 

    This film is like an onion: literally made me cry as each layer was peeled. (I know peeling an onion won’t make you cry, but I wanted to be poetic. Anyway, I have so many thoughts on this film. So maaaannnyyyy.)

    For something technical and un-onion-y: Niramon Ross’ cinematography was gentle, all too natural, and quite...appropriately minimal. Stellar acting by a great cast, too (props to Chutimon, who played Jean, most especially). Lovely, lovely work, you guys. *cries in a corner*

    Ahhhh, when a log line ends up being one solid, beautiful film. Love the art style, too.

    Mr. Fine, Lt. Dan, knows how to rock a bandana and is surely smart with money, alright.

    Possibly the sweetest movie ever made.

    For the kid (i.e. me) who grew up being decked out in all Pooh things in school out of sheer love for the pants-less bear, this A.A. Milne piece is still something clearly remembered:

    “Wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
    There's always Pooh and Me.
    Whatever I do, he wants to do,
    'Where are you going today?' says Pooh:
    'Well, that's very odd 'cos I was too.
    Let's go together,' says Pooh, says he.
    'Let's go together,' says Pooh.”

    So…
