Punch-Drunk Love ★★★★★

Fourth viewing. I have stopped noticing new stuff, I suppose, but that makes the experience of watching no less enjoyable. The consistency of mood throughout combined with the brief run time make it a film that I expect to watch many, many more times. The use of Jon Brion’s score is probably the most satisfying aspect here, but on every level it functions as a touching, funny examination of a wounded soul’s confrontation of the hostile environment that enabled him to entrap himself.

95/100
