"there’s a whole life in that, in knowing that the sun is there."
i like movies where nothing happens.
"is this really all there is?"
when i tell you that i was more excited for this movie than i was anything else this year, i mean it wholeheartedly. its surprising though, this isn’t my kind of movie, its not the usual thing i get excited about. do i chalk a lot of it up to my enormous crush on dev patel? maybe.
i thought i missed my chance to see it outside of my home but tyneside cinema released…
“i’m so fucking tired. i thought i just needed a night’s sleep but it’s... it’s more than that.”
there’s something incredibly intimate about the way people are portrayed in this film, how they enter llewyn’s life for a brief moment of time before disappearing entirely with rarely any conclusions. the way the camera lingers as someone walks away for the last time or a car drives off into the darkness. i don’t know how to describe it but its so earnest and painful and honest.
u know what? i actually enjoyed this quite a bit. definitely not the sort of film i’d expect myself to be involved it but as so many people have said before me, it feels like a proper classic blockbuster and completely leans into that. it hits all the right emotional notes, its tense moments are done perfectly and i punched a container of nachos onto adam’s lap when miles teller finally came on screen ❤️
