do all lovers feel they're inventing something?

this was my most anticipated film of 2019 so i hoped by the time the credits started rolling i'd have something smart or at least coherent to say about it. but to be honest i'm still collecting myself and i am still having trouble breathing so there's that.

right now all i can say is how this film made me feel: some moments i couldn't stop myself from crying, others i couldn't stop smiling. it's tender, brooding and anxious—yet joyful and celebratory. and of course, visually gorgeous.

it's like a sacred sequence of memories between the two leads and it definitely felt sacred to me too as an audience. what an absolute dream of a film.
