I’m not trying to change the world, I’m trying not to let the world change me!
I remember thinking the romance felt a little too rushed the first time I saw this, but seeing it again mostly blew that idea away. The short scenes are probably part of what gave me that impression, but that editing allows the lengthy key sequences to make their impact.
These women are beautifully cast. The small scenes each leave their impressions. The music choices are wonderful. That peerless hotel room scene is made all the more powerful by passing on a sweeping accompaniment. Never have diegetic sounds been so scintillating.
