film school in england seems like a lotta work. film school in america is mostly just makin a bad movie trailer about a radiohead song a few months after you hear radiohead for the first time
Just stellar. Haven’t seen a sequel like this in so long, so justified as a proper ending to a story and not just a “continuation” of it. Some scenes were a truly affecting in their resonance; I commented afterwards to someone how it’s always a strange but unifying experience to watch a piece of art that depicts an experience you once considered unique. I felt a great hmm after watching The Souvenir a few years back but this second part made me want to revisit it, and I’d recommend anyone revisit it before watching the sequel. Also, you get more Richard Ayoade, so- it’s better!
