    The Long Day Closes

    ★★★★★

    soul food of the purest variety. the closest i’ve ever felt a film come to capturing the essence of memory. certain things stand out in your mind while others are much vaguer and more liquid, and the way one moment flows into another is often left completely up to chance and tangential relation rather than chronological order. the way the film maps out such specific childhood images to create one cohesive journey through a person’s life is just unbelievable to me.…

    here’s the thing. i don’t disagree with a single statement the film is trying to make. watching this opened my eyes to many of the specific hoops that people like daniel have to jump through in order to get the help they need, aspects of the film that i can only assume are based on factual information — the asinine procedures that fundamentally misunderstand and often deliberately neglect the needs of the lower class, the current of the endless loop…

    opened with a video introduction by lynch himself at the weather report desk thanking us for watching and saying how much he wished he had time to sing for us before the movie started. wish i could see all of his stuff on the big screen because it’s absolutely where it belongs

    i was not prepared for this. within the first half hour or so i thought i was ready to dive into a whole write up on why this film is essentially a less creative carbon copy of inside out, but it turned out to be just the slice of existential cake i needed in my life. i’m 19 years old and i’m at a point where i find myself hell bent on searching for my purpose, the thing, propelled by…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    ruben is a perfectly flawed protagonist. this is both the result of good writing with clear character motivation and a good actor that can wholly embody the role at hand. this film has both of those things.

    by getting the cochlear implant he kind of enters an expensive, irreversible purgatory for which he never fully acknowledges his distaste. but you can clearly tell in his eyes and body language that there’s a large part of him that wishes he’d never…
