    ★★★★½

    shocked at the low rating for this and how most reviews say nothing or are completely missing the point.

    this is a less suffocating (thanks to the adorably warm presence of Vicky Krieps) but equally effective Piano Teacher. it also reminds me of Mr Lazarescu, a tragic film that's labeled a dramedy which i find no humor in. Lynn's nonchalance and cluelessness about what she does to experience just a little bit of intimacy to me is just sad as…

    "Everything we feel, we have to put into words. Sometimes I just want to feel things."

    It's hard to accept that we're in for a journey of the unknown. We do our best to figure out our identity and what makes us who we are. we follow ambitions, lusts and desires, seek love and care, hurt, get hurt, cross paths with others doing the same, some leave no mark, others remain forever part of our journey whether present or not.…

    I'm sure the film was meant to be as tedious as it was, with the 4:3 for extra claustrophobia. it's shot nicely and the performance is fantastic. but when it's so unsophisticated and unconvincing with the logistics, it does not make for a compelling 2 hour watch.

    first of all I LOVED shithouse. i thought raiff did a good job both directing it and acting. although in this exact moment, under the effect of just finishing this film, i am questioning that, but i'm confident a rewatch will prove that to be true again.

    now, this was the longest 107 minutes of my life. cooper raiff is absolutely abominable in this. i've never seen a director overestimate their own charisma and screen presence as bad as this.…
