when it ended I kinda wanted to hate on it cause that last clip felt like it completely eclipsed the actual film but I guess if I thought the clip was that touching, the film must have done a pretty good job. still, there's a whole lot wrong with it.
the lonely dreamy iwai haze is back <3 his visuals have really become next level. I've never seen someone use so much hand-held and wide angle lens like he does.
I've been sitting here for like an hour trying to type something about how this film made me feel but I just keep deleting what I've written. it's a good thing though. this was special.
what can I even say
I don't cape for sono much but every time I watch a new film of his I just fall in love. he's pretty much the polar opposite of the types of films I usually like most but god damnit how can you not love some of the stuff he does. absolute madman in the flesh.
and shoutout to ami tomite & ariko tsutsui for their performances. jesus christ. really wasn't expecting that from either of them.
