    One of the most emotionally complicated films I’ve seen. Only 2 films in and Rohmer already one of the goats.

    Song to Song

    I was in awe of this film. How can someone make something this beautiful? This poetic? This majestic? I didn't think I could love Rooney Mara more but holy shit she is my  God. Ryan Gosling in his best performance since Drive. Natalie Portman is fantastic as always. Michael Fassbender is a legend in this film. Malick has never made a film this romantic, this intimate, this lovely, this heartbreaking, and this beautiful. I'm L I V I N G !
