    The car crash scene in this is Tati at his best - absurd, meticulous staging, and repetition. This has its moments of slowness, but I think it fits in perfectly with his filmography, especially thematically. Sometimes it’s not about where you’re going, but what you do on the way there.

    I can’t believe I’ve never really listened to Bruce Springsteen.

    Really, really good and beautiful and painful. But mostly beautiful. This is worth seeing no matter what age (or gender) you are.

    Also, the backseat scene is more intense than all of Hereditary.

    Romantic in all the best ways, optimistic in a way most films aren’t, and beautiful - both thematically and visually. I found the editing to be so exciting, and I never felt lost with how much it moves around. Going from the warmth of the past to what can feel like a colder present, then finally having it all converge into a new kind of warmth was just brilliant. 2019....good year for movies.
