Seeking a Friend for the End of the World ★★★★★

I was quite shocked to love this movie as much as I did. It serves as a nice counter to Melancholia, and doesn't wuss out. This is a very humanist approach to this scenario, that even in its goofy or dark scenes is only so cynical, instead coming across as a very emotionally intelligent take on the value of human connection. You could look at this as a bummer, and it is definitely more of a drama than I expected, but it's not nihilistic whatsoever. It only feels like a bummer because the people in this story are about to lose the only thing that is important.
