This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
1) I will never tire of Mike Mills' narrative stylings. They are affecting, regardless of their slight shortcutting. They create scale, nostalgia, and perspective, even in the smallest stories.
2) Any film that depicts a 15-year-old boy passionately explaining the benefits of clitoral stimulation is a service to society.
3) The cinematography - especially throughout the sweeping, languid skateboard scenes - is gorgeous. This film furthers the skateboard as the ultimate symbol of youth in postmodern film. It has transcended the decades.
4) Billy Crudup, forever and always.
