    I first saw this when I was a few years younger than the leads, thinking they were so cool and so smart that they clearly deserved each other's perfection. Now I'm a few years older than them and I recognise a lot more youthful arrogance and insecurities that I definitely could relate to when I WAS that age. It does so much to ground this love story in reality, making the escapism feel oh so possible. 

    So worth watching again…

    It's not the straight-up reboot I was expecting, and I appreciate that. However, it still plays like a Now This Is What I Call Alien Vol 17 compilation disc of all the previous films. And I DO mean all of them. Take that as you will.

    It's a Terrence Malick film for feminists and people who hate Terrence Malick.
