I’m very late to the party on this little film. I don’t think I have anything more meaningful or original to say about this film that hasn’t been said a thousand times before. But then again nothing in this film is truly original. To watch this film is to relieve the awkward and dull moments everyone has encountered in life in a slightly more unique context. I’m not unique in saying these things but is anyone? We’ll live we’ll forget…
Why can’t Nic Cage portray my inner anxieties!?!?
I forgot how fucking good this movie is, one of the greatest screenplays about screenplays ever put to film
We’ve forgotten that Chris Cooper was not only the only person to win an Oscar for this film, but he also won it playing a Florida Man.
The Judy Greer dinner scene hits way to hard in a way that should and does concern me
“And god help you if you use voiceover in your work my friends!” -spoken by a pre-succession but still magnificent Brian Cox
R.I.P. Donald Kaufman and his magnum opus “The 3"
Chris Pratt really wobbles on the line of being love able and being annoying.
That felt harsh, for the record I still love him but Octavia Spencer definitely kills it.
A mixture of really good stuff with some just ok stuff. I blame Pixar for setting our expectations so fricking high that when they do something slightly less then that it’s kinda disappointing. Still has a ton of heart which more when you know the story behind the movie (seriously look it up).
Not gonna lie, this movie is fuuuucked up but in effort to seem cool here are some witty comments to make it seem like I wasn’t phased by it.
“Should have just given him those damn eggs.”
“It’s like Saw but for pretentious cinephiles.”
“Nothing is more scary then white boys in white shorts”
“Gotta love finding a hidden Mickey in a Austrian torture film, Walt would be proud”
“Yorgos Lanthimos and Eli Roth have some explaining to do”
