Old Joy ★★★★★

Every single film I have seen by Kelly Reichardt has impressed me immensely. They all tell stories about normal people like you and me. And Kelly handles these stories with the utmost respect for the people and the nature surrounding them.

Old Joy is not different from any other Reichardt film in that matter. The quite and calm filmmaking only enhances the experience more.
The shots of nature combined with gorgeous music in between scenes are utter bliss and give the film (like a character says so perfectly in the film) an otherworldly kind of peacefulness.

Oh Kelly, what would I do without you and your perfect filmography?
