"Everyone will always owe him [Orson Welles] everything" - Jean-Luc Godard
There's a scene in the middle of Frances Ha, where Frances goes to visit her parents in Sacremento. And she's having a wonderful time, but before she knows it, it's over.
It might just be one of my favorite sequences in any film I've ever seen. It perfectly captures that feeling of time going so fast, that the thing itself already feels like a distant memory as soon as it's over.
But you couldn't possibly make an entire film feel like that? Right? Right?
Well, I think Lady Bird just did it.
