Eighteen

Eighteen ★★★

I like the opening shot a lot, and some of the flashbacks are nice but it's just a guy being possessive of a girl who dumped him and without the critical attention that a filmmaker like say, Hong Sang-soo would give the situation. It's nice and a little bittersweet, but these young romance things have been done better before. It frequently looks beautiful, but maybe I'm also growing out of this sort of thing? I already feel like I need to see it again, which could mean two things: that there's something that warrants a revisit or it's just easy to forget. I'm not sure which is the right answer.
