it's very kafkaesque
I watched this on Wednesday and forgot to log it here, which is dumb cuz this is GREAT. Social advocacy that is sadly still relevant today. Also worth noting that R. Murrow intended this to air ahead of Thanksgiving to WRECK America, knocking the rich upper class off their high horse. We stan. Good night and good luck.
Funny how in an It's A Wonderful Life style turn of events, everytime I wanna just give up; Charlie Kaufman comes along and blesses me with a new movie.
In his latest assault on the senses, Kaufman adapts (for the first time in his directoral features) a novel in a way *so* cinematic that it's hard to believe this story has been told in any other medium. This movie is paced like a heart attack. Jess(i)e, both Buckley and Plemmons…
AN UTTERLY AMAZING FILM.
A true work of magic. By far the best family film of the year and an absolute delight, in the purest form.
It's a 2 hour movie, and I'd be willing to watch it a million more times.
Reminded me that I'm a kid. That I'm young at heart and always will be. Movie magic.
P.S. For anyone who has a heart, see it twice. I fell in love with movies again.
