    ★★★★½

    It’s ridiculous how good this film is, even considering all of early Hitch. It’s more patient and potent than his other, more energetic, early work and is paced brilliantly.

    Better than I remembered it being. And somehow Harry Dean Stanton makes this film twice as good with his whopping 20 seconds of screen time.

    How in the world is this a directorial debut? So much heart and compassion. You feel like Gerwig cared deeply and equally for every character onscreen, no matter the size of the role. Laurie Metcalf and Tracy Letts are phenomenal in this.

    Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell Live

    I have decided that there is no possible way for me to rank this film. I cannot disconnect the film itself from the music and the performance. As I was fortunate enough to see Sufjan on this tour I am also unable to disconnect the film or the music itself from the profound, life changing experience that it was to see this show live. I know the film reminded me of that feeling which is something I'm very grateful for. I will simply click on the little heart, go to my room and cry for joy of life and art, and leave it at that.
