A Single Man ★★★★★

This is probably going to be one of my favorite movies of all time. To start, the opening and closing shots are haunting and beautiful, the kiss that signifies the passing of life to death. This entire film exists in the moments of shared connections that George is able to find with others after losing the one love of his life. It’s a snapshot of one life in the 1960s, and while there isn’t necessarily a full plot, there doesn’t need to be. It’s the moments of happiness and profoundness in a life of prolonged sadness. It’s people that need each other and those you least expect. I need to watch this again soon but I’ll be thinking about it for a long time.
