  • Falling in Love

    Falling in Love

    ★★★

    would have been better had the two leads been unknown. as it stands, their initial courting phase falls somewhat flat, as they are not strangers, rather, for the audience, their reputations proceed them. therefore we do not get to feel the joy of discovering the other, and ourselves in the other, to the extent the characters do.
    besides, it can be frustrating to have two protagonists consistently indulge their more selfish impulses

    true to form, just like in life, as soon as we get to the art opening it's all down hill. sure it's realistic, but theres I reason I cant stand that stuff in real life
    i had a real nice time with the characters before that. the movie is not very pushy or in a rush and I liked that
    would have been nice if anyone in this movie had any sort of useful ambition or passion for anything other than a life of slinking apathy
    but like with all these movies , even when they suck, which they mostly do suck im glad they exist
